Clark County Woman Charged In Connection With Death Of Her Mother

A Dorchester woman is charged in a drunken driving crash that killed her mother.

Twenty-two-year-old Megan Redding told investigators she was drinking with her mother and a friend at a couple of bars and left around closing time March 11th.

Court records say the younger Redding was behind the wheel when the car spun out on a curve and hit a tree. Forty-seven-year-old Laura Redding died at the scene.

Prosecutors say the daughter's blood alcohol level was about two and a-half times the legal limit in Wisconsin.

Megan Redding is charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. She could go to prison for up to 50 years if convicted.

Court documents show the fatal crash happened about a month after Megan Redding was charged with drunken driving.
