OSHKOSH (AP) - An Oshkosh woman has reached a plea deal in a crash that killed a pedestrian last September.
Forty-six-year-old Tina Trepanier pleaded no contest to homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle and a second drunken driving offense. In exchange for her plea, two other charges were dismissed.
According to the complaint, Trepanier was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee at a high rate of speed on Sept. 7 when she struck 53-year-old Gina Micheln, who was walking in the road.
Prosecutors say Trepanier had a blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit.
Sentencing is set for Aug. 12. An Oshkosh Northwestern Media report says prosecutors will recommend a sentence of three to five years imprisonment followed by three to five years of extended supervision.
