MERILL, WI (WTAQ) - A Merrill woman is due back in court a week from Thursday for the drunk driving deaths of two friends.
A pre-trial conference was held Monday in the case of 25-year-old Ashley Baumann.
Lincoln County court officials say the case is on track for a week-long trial starting December 16th. The jury would be picked three days before then, unless there’s a plea deal beforehand.
Baumann is charged with 9 felonies in a crash 13 months ago in Merrill that killed two of her passengers, 31-year-old Misty Glisch and 33-year-old Jessica Hartwig.
Prosecutors said Baumann’s car was going almost 100 miles an hour when it rolled over several times. A 29-year-old passenger survived.
Baumann is charged with causing deaths and injury by drunk driving, and reckless driving while causing injuries.
