Charge dropped against Witkus

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- A Marathon County judge drops one of the charges against a Marshfield man accused of killing a baby in a vehicle versus buggy crash.

Back in November, Brian Witkus pleaded not guilty to homicide by intoxicated and negligent use of a vehicle.

Tuesday, the intoxication charge was dropped and Witkus pleaded guilty to the second charge.  The judge says the state doesn't have enough evidence to prove Witkus was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

In August 2009, Witkus crashed his van into a horse-drawn buggy killing 6-week-old Ada Mae Miller.

He'll be sentenced in July.
