A preliminary hearing is set for the man accused of killing three Chippewa Falls Girl Scouts and a mother in a crash. Colten Treu was back in court Wednesday by video conference for a review hearing.
Treu’s attorney’s asked for a delay in his preliminary hearing until April so both sides could review his toxicology results. The defendant’s preliminary hearing is set for April 12th.
Investigators said Treu and a passenger in his truck were “huffing” just before Treu plowed into a Girl Scout troop picking up trash along a Chippewa County road last November. Treu faces eleven charges, including homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and hit and run resulting in death.
