Stand off Suspect in Court

Pleas of not guilty & not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect were entered on behalf of a Door County man who was arrested in August after an armed confrontation with law enforcement in Sturgeon Bay. Forty year old Christopher McNulty faces five felony & two misdemeanor counts in connection with the standoff in which shots were fired. Luckily, no one was injured & the situation was resolved peacefully. On Tuesday, Judge Peter Diltz scheduled a status conference for November 14th at 9:30AM & ordered a pretrial mental examination for McNulty. The judge asked district attorney Ray Pelrine & defense attorney Rick Meier to reach a consensus on a psychiatrist to do the examination within ten days. If they cannot come to an agreement, Judge Diltz will select an individual to provide the independent report. McNulty faces charges of first degree attempted intentional homicide, second degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon, failure to comply with an officer, criminal damage through use of a dangerous weapon , & operating a firearm while intoxicated.
