Wisconsin Girl, 10, Charged With Homicide in Daycare Killing of Infant

Police say a 21-year-old man allegedly killed three Wisconsin Girl Scouts and one of their mothers over the weekend when he ran off the road and struck the victims while they were cleaning trash along a highway.

Treu was found guilty of "operating with a prohibited blood alcohol concentration" in November 2014 in Chippewa County, the complaint says.

Ivan Moreno, The Associated Press •.

Handcuffed and wearing a leather restraint around her waist, the girl sobbed as she appeared in Chippewa County Circuit Court on Monday.

The girl is now being tried in adult court according to state law but the court may later change that to juvenile court as the investigation continues. Both subjects gave statements to police which included that they had been intentionally inhaling chemical vapors which is commonly called "Huffing", just prior to the accident.


A 10-year-old girl in the USA has been charged with the death of a 6-month-old boy.

"Picking out a casket was really hard, going through the photos and videos is hard", said Robin Kelley, Jayna's mother. Judy Schneider said her 6-year-old grandson doesn't understand that they're gone. The driver, Colten Treu, sped away, but later surrendered to authorities. She was ordered her held on $50,000 cash bond.

Treu made his initial appearance in court on November 6. Though the judge was unable to reveal why the defendant had been removed from her biological parent's care; the girl's parents appeared in court with her during the proceedings.

She said the support has been positively overwhelming. Now, she said, "It's going to be hollow".

Accompanied by her parents, she wept throughout the 10-minute proceedings.


The 10-year-old then "didn't know what to do and didn't want to get into trouble and then she proceeded to stomp on the 6-month-old's head", he said.

The Girl Scouts out on the highway that day were all fourth-graders at Halmstad and Southview elementary schools in the Chippewa Falls School District.

Hundreds of community members huddled under umbrellas in the rain Sunday evening for a candlelight vigil outside Halmstad Elementary. Another girl who was hit remains hospitalized tonight.

In front of Halmstad Elementary, teddy bears, balloons, candles and a bouquet of flowers sat on two wooden benches Sunday afternoon.

Ms Schneider said the deaths of her daughter and granddaughter were "still not real for any of us".
