Accused driver in fatal hit-and-run appears in court
A Chippewa County judge rules that statements made by a man accused in four hit-and-run deaths will not be suppressed.
Colten Treu, 22, appeared for a motion hearing Wednesday afternoon.
He is charged with 11 counts, including four counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle in the crash Nov. 3 in Lake Hallie that killed three girl scouts and a mother.
Judge James Isaacson denied a defense motion to suppress statements Treu made to law enforcement shortly after the crash.
Treu faces a jury trial in January.
