LANGLADE COUNTY (WAOW) -- Police consider him the last person to see Kayla Berg alive. On Tuesday, Kevin Kielcheski appeared in court to ask a judge to dismiss the charges against him. Kielcheski is charged with 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety. Investigators believe Kielcheski was the last person to see Berg alive when he dropped her off at a Wausau home in 2009. The Antigo native hasn't been seen or heard from since, and it's unclear whether she ever made it into that home. The defense and prosecution argued on both sides of the motion Tuesday.

"There is nothing alleged in this complaint from which you can infer that Kevin had any reason to believe that she'd do anything except spend the evening or night with her boyfriend who lived there in Wausau," said defense attorney Christopher Van Wagner.

"Even at 24 years old, unless he lives in a vacuum he is aware that young women are abducted, raped, and murder more often then we certainly would want to happen," said District Attorney Ralph Uttke.

Meanwhile, the search for Berg continues. As we mentioned, she hasn't been seen since the night she was dropped off at home on the city's eastside. A reward is being offered from information leading to an arrest in her case. The judge did not rule on whether to throw out the case against Kielcheski. He returns to court in early August.
