Man Was 'Huffing' Just Before Crash That Killed 3 Girl Scouts and Adult

Man Accused of Killing 3 Girl Scouts and an Adult to be Charged with 4 Counts of Homicide Through Negligent Use of Vehicle

Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell told the court that the girl accidentally dropped the baby, who hit his head on a stool and started crying.

Nine-year-old Jayna Kelley and 10-year-old Autum Helgeson, both of Lake Hallie, were also killed.

Schneider said her daughter's "favorite time with her kids was all in their jammies, curled up to watch a movie".

Authorities say Treu's black pickup truck was traveling northbound on a two-lane road when the vehicle crossed over the centerline and veered into the ditch hitting the Girl Scout troop.

Defense attorney Kirby Harless asked for a smaller bond, saying the girl has lived her whole life in the area and there is no reason to think she wouldn't attend a future court hearing.

According to Newell, police responded to an emergency call on the afternoon of October 30.

State law requires the case, at least initially, to be held in adult court.

Neither the girl or the infant were identified in media reports.




Prosecutors are considering 13 charges against Treu, including four counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle. She was with her biological parents, the paper reported, but she had been removed from their home in September and placed in the foster home.

Treu was "somewhat out of it", the passenger said, and grabbed the wheel back, drove off the roadway and struck the group, Newell said.

He said that when the baby cried, the girl panicked and stomped on his head.

Police questioned one adult and three children who were present at the day care center.

The other charges Treu faces are for felony bail jumping, intentionally abusing a hazardous substance, and causing "great bodily harm" during a hit-and-run because another Girl Scout in the group was injured. The truck was found to be abandoned in the garage at this location and the driver and a passenger had left the house prior to police arriving.

Treu appeared via video in court Tuesday afternoon for an initial appearances on 11 counts, including four counts of homicide.

"It's not such a good morning for Chippewa County", Kowalczyk said to open a news conference about both matters.
