MIAMI -- A homeless man accused of stalking tennis star Anna
Kournikova once stabbed a sleeping college student in Milwaukee, an
attack prosecutors used Wednesday to get his bail increased.
William Lepeska was arrested Jan. 30 after police said he swam nude across Biscayne Bay in search of Kournikova's $5 million house
on Miami Beach's Sunset Island 3.
Prosecutor Stephen Immasche persuaded County Court Judge Fred Seraphin to raise Lepeska's bail from $26,000 to $50,000 after
Wisconsin officials said Lepeska had stabbed a male University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee student in the head and neck area five or
Lepeska was convicted of first-degree reckless injury and was
imprisoned from 1995 to 2000. In late 2001, he was returned to
prison for eight months for violating his probation.
Lepeska remained at Miami-Dade County Jail, pending a Friday
arraignment on stalking and burglary charges.
