Reckless homicide trial in 2019 Holmen area death could happen late this year



A reckless homicide case in La Crosse County dating back to 2019 could go to trial late this year. 

Judge Elliott Levine says a trial for Lori Ann Phillips of Holmen may be set for November or December.  Phillips is accused of causing the apparent hit-and-run death of her husband Mark in February of 2019. 

Investigators say Mark Phillips might have been hit by a pickup truck.  Lori says his death may have been an accident.  An appeals court says evidence involving a pickup truck should not have been suppressed at earlier court hearings.

Attorneys in the case are contacting witnesses and preparing motions, in advance of the Phillips trial, which is scheduled to last about a week in La Crosse County court.
