An Oshkosh woman charged in connection to a crash that killed a pedestrian pleaded no contest to homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle and a second drunken driving offense during a hearing before Winnebago County Circuit Court Judge John Jorgensen.

According to the criminal complaint, Tina M. Trepanier, 46, was driving a 2001 gold Jeep Grand Cherokee at a high rate of speed on Ohio Street near Eighth Avenue on Sept. 7, 2012, when she struck Gina Micheln, 53.

Micheln, who was walking in the road before the 2 a.m. crash, became stuck under the sport utility vehicle and was dragged for a block.

Trepanier, who admitted she was driving when officers found her next to her vehicle, had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.159 percent. Investigators also found blood and hair on the undercarriage of her vehicle.

In exchange for her plea, charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and homicide by the use of a motor vehicle with a prohibited alcohol concentration were dismissed.

Winnebago County District Attorney Christian Gossett said the state will recommend a sentence of three to five years of initial confinement followed by three to five years of extended supervision when Trepanier is sentenced Aug. 12.
