Girl Scout, mom killed in crash loved crafts

Girl Scout, mom killed in crash loved crafts”

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

Police say 21-year-old Colten Treu (TROO) had been inhaling chemical vapors before crashing his truck into the group as they picked up trash along a rural Wisconsin highway in Lake Hallie. The suspect is now being held in the Chippewa County Jail on four counts of homicide while intoxicated.

Defense attorney Kirby Harless asked for a smaller bond, saying there was no reason to believe the girl wouldn't appear for future court proceedings.

In court on Monday, Chippewa County Sheriff James Kowalczyk said the girl told authorities that she was holding the child and dropped him, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Kowalczyk said it has been a challenging couple of days for his office, between investigating this case as well as the four deaths in a auto crash Saturday in Lake Hallie.

Authorities identified the girls as 9-year-old Jayna Kelley and 10-year-old Autum Helgeson, both of Lake Hallie, and 10-year-old Haylee Hickle, from the Town of Lafayette. The latter's mother Sara Jo Schneider, 32, was also killed.

The victims were picking up trash in the ditches of County Highway P when they were struck.

Treu was arrested on charges including four counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle, police said.

One additional 10-year-old is still in the hospital, but they say she is reported to be in stable condition. Colten Treu, 21, faces multiple counts of homicide. The district attorney said Treu and a friend bought an air duster from Wal, art Saturday morning and were huffing it in the auto when the friend realized Treu wasn't driving straight.

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

The incident happened in the same county where three Girl Scouts were killed by a truck driver over the weekend.

This investigation is far from over and any persons who may have witnessed this accident are encouraged to contact the Lake Hallie Police Department.

Haylee also enjoyed painting and working on clay pottery with her mother.

"It was heartbreaking", said Tabatha Kolve, 18, a Girl Scout and a troop leader who helped her fourth-graders assemble 150 candles for the vigil.
