After a nerve-wracking couple of weeks, a Marathon County couple can finally breathe easier. Sheriff's deputies have arrested three of four people they believe robbed a couple at gunpoint in their own home.

"One thing for sure is my wife and I will be able to sleep a lot better," said Al Shidell. "Knowing that at least three of the people have been locked up with some cash bonds."

Nineteen-year-old Toby Thompson has a history of violent behavior and was out on bond when the incident happened. He is being held on $100,000 bond.

Prosecutors say Christopher Cassidy drove the group to the Shidell's home that night. Cassidy and another suspect Crystal Baldwin are both being held on $25,000 bond.

Deputies are still looking for the fourth suspect, 18-year-old Antwan Slater. They say they believe he is still in the Marathon County area, and is considered armed and dangerous.

They are warning anyone who sees him, not to approach him, but to call them immediately. They can be reached at 261-1200
