Rubenzer Initial

The initial court appearance for 20-year-old Ryan Rubenzer was Tuesday in Chippewa County Circuit Court but he will not enter a plea until after his preliminary hearing.

The Bloomer native has been charged with multiple counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle.

On May 5, 20-year-old Kelly Hartman and 19-year-old Adam Ludwigson were killed when the vehicle Rubenzer was driving overturned and struck two trees southeast of Bloomer.

A blood test showed Rubenzer had a blood alcohol content of more than twice Wisconsin's legal limit.

Rubenzer will next appear in court on July 7.
