Motorcyclist accused of OWI homicide stands mute in court

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WXPR) -- An Elkhorn, Wisconsin woman charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle has been bound over for trial.

50-year-old Lynette Haman was arrested after a September 13, 2013 traffic incident with another motorcyclist. The incident happened on Oneida County Highway L and Prairie Rapids Road, nine miles north of Tomahawk. Deputies say Haman was traveling south when her motorcycle veered in front of another motorcycle driven by 50-year-old Benjamin Guite of Merrill. Both drivers were taken to hospitals in Marshfield and Wausau. Guite died from his injuries in Wausau.

In Oneida County Circuit Court, Haman stood mute and pleas of not guilty were entered for her on both counts. She's also charged with homicide by use of a motor vehicle with a prohibited blood alcohol content. Judge Patrick O'Melia found enough evidence to bind Haman over for trial on both high felony counts. A pre­trial conference was set for April 8.
