Four more potential victims came to police today, saying they had sex with 22-year-old Michael Johnson, who is accused of knowingly spreading HIV.

Johnson was charged on Thursday for recklessly risking infection of another with HIV--a charge that carries a 30 year prison term if he is convicted. Johnson was a member of the Lindenwood University wrestling team who learned his HIV-positive status in January. Prosecutors say he then engaged in sexual activity with at least one victim without disclosing the diagnosis. Court documents say the victim contracted HIV from Johnson.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois authorities say a 28-year-old man stabbed two people during a weekend home invasion in what may be a case of mistaken identity.

Madison County prosecutors charged Grant Connor of Bridgeview with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and home invasion.

State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says Connor knocked on a Glen Carbon home's door claiming to have a disabled car. Then he charged, stabbing a 35-year-old man who offered to let him use the telephone.

That victim managed to grab a knife and stabbed Connor in the throat while a 33-year-old woman tried to intervene before also being stabbed.

The victims were released from a hospital. Investigators say Connor may have been searching for someone else with a similar name.

Court records don't show whether Connor has an attorney
