Sheriff: 10-year-old says she stomped head of baby in panic

A sheriff's deputy investigating the accident traced a fluid trail that led to the house where Treu lived with the truck's passenger, according to the complaint.

Treu's bond was set at $250,000.

District Attorney Wade Newell said the girl was in foster care at a home in Tilden, WI, which also served as an in-home daycare, on October 30, when she accidentally dropped the 6-month-old boy.

Another 10-year-old Girl Scout is hospitalized in stable condition.

The truck hit and killed 9-year-old Jayna Kelley and 10-year-old Autumn Helgeson - both of Lake Hallie. The suspect is now being held in the Chippewa County Jail on four counts of homicide while intoxicated.

Treu was arrested on charges including four counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle, police said. When the two on duty Lake Hallie Officers arrived on scene, they learned that a black pickup truck struck 5 pedestrians and fled the scene.

Police questioned one adult and three children who were at the daycare centre.

The girls were collecting trash next to a rural highway over the weekend when a pick-up truck hit them.

The court appearance lasted about six minutes, and during much of it, Treu sat quietly with his hands folded as a prosecutor detailed what happened Saturday morning. Judy Schneider said her 6-year-old grandson doesn't understand that they're gone.

Treu is expected to appear at a bond hearing at 10 a.m. Monday.

Apparently, the girl was removed from her biological parents' home in September this year. "No one could turn around", mother and troop leader Robin Kelley said. He surrendered to authorities Saturday.

The Star Tribune reported the girl appeared in court in handcuffs and was charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

In a separate interview with The Associated Press, she said "Haylee would've never made it if she lost her mother". Girl Scouts sang songs in memory of the victims, who were members of Troop 3055.

Though Judy Schneider is grieving the loss of her daughter and granddaughter who were killed in an alleged hit-and-run in Wisconsin, she said the two "needed to be together".
