HART — The case against a 44-year-old Detroit man accused of stabbing a man and assaulting another man and woman at the Lucky Lake Campground in Grant Township last June was bound over to 27th Circuit Court during a preliminary exam in 78th District Court Monday, Nov. 22, according to Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

Mario Louis Corsetti, of 4134 Courville St., was bound over on all counts including a felony of assault with intent to murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, and two felonies of assault with intent to commit great bodily harm less than murder, each of which are punishable by up to 10 years. 

He remains lodged in the Oceana County Jail on a $1 million cash bond. 

The stabbing victim Patrick Peereenboom, 30, of Pontiac, Michigan was in an intensive care unit for a stab wound near his heart where the knife hit a major artery and a stab wound to one of his lungs. Peereenboom was being called a hero, because he was trying to deescalate the dangerous situation involving strangers.

Michigan State Police Trooper Joshua Greeno testified Monday that he thought Peereenboom would die from his injury, said Bizon. Peereenboom “appeared well” in court Monday, he said.

“He was stabbed twice — one just by his heart where it hit a major artery and also sliced one of his lung’s main intakes for oxygen — the other wasn’t as serious — the combination of these two stabbings put him into intensive care and several hours of surgery where they had to perform open heart surgery and replace part of that lung’s air intakes with an artificial tube,” said his brother Josh McKenna previously.

Corsetti was arrested by Michigan State Police troopers following the stabbing at the campground early Sunday morning, June 20. A 33-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man were identified as victims but were not stabbed or hospitalized, said MSP Sgt. Dan Thomas.

Corsetti underwent a psychiatric exam at a state forensic center and was found “competent and criminally responsible,” said Bizon. The defense may request an independent evaluation.

Police were called to the scene located in the 3200 block of Winston Road at 1:30 a.m. There was a “gathering of people” at the campground, said Sgt. Thomas.

The campground is the site of the Lakes of Fire event, which normally occurs the third weekend in June. However, it was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. The gathering that took place that weekend was not sponsored by Lakes of Fire, which is an official Burning Man event.
