DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A Wisconsin woman has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, telling a judge she was under the influence of a sleeping pill when she struck a woman in Duluth.
Theresa Katzmark, of Superior, entered the plea in St. Louis County court Monday in responses to charged filed following the death in April of Donna Estem, a 62-year-old woman. The victim had stopped to see if Katzmark was all right after she crashed her SUV.
As Estem walked in front of the SUV, Katzmark put it in drive and pinned Estem against an electrical box. WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/2se0lWE ) says Katzmark told a judge she intended to put the vehicle in reverse to move it to a parking lot.
She told the court she doesn’t remember much of the incident because she was under the influence of Ambien. The sentencing in the case is scheduled for Aug. 10.
