SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan man accused of terrorizing his wife and 5 children over a period of several years will be back in Sheboygan County Court Thursday afternoon for a preliminary hearing. 40 year old Lao Jin was ruled mentally competent to stand trial on 17 counts including child abuse, recklessly endangering safety and intimidating a victim. Jin was arrested in April after his children, ages 6 to 14, told stories of being threatened and prodded with guns, being locked in a trunk for two hours, and being shocked with a dog collar. Today’s proceeding will determine if there is enough evidence for a trial. In the meantime, Jin remains behind bars on $750,000 cash bond.
