MADISON - A La Crosse man is trying to win back his freedom, after he was committed to a state mental institution for stabbing a police officer seven years ago.

30-year-old Joseph Smith will undergo a series of psychiatric tests. The results will be given to a judge in La Crosse who will consider Smith's latest petition for release. It's the sixth time he's made such a request.
