    OCONTO (WLUK) -- The driver who crashed his vehicle, killing a passenger, was ordered Friday to stand trial on reckless homicide charges.

    Cade Wied, 18, enters a plea March 19 on five charges, including second-degree reckless homicide. He waived his preliminary hearing, according to court records.

    September Deneys, 14, was killed in the Dec. 14 crash in town of Abrams.

    According to the criminal complaint, the vehicle left the roadway and struck two trees before coming to rest. Wied says he was driving about 55 mph, but the speed limit in that area was 45 mph. Data recovered from the car showed it was travelling at about 88 mph.

    The night of the crash, Wied admitted he was driving. But in an interview a few days later, Wied claimed the girl who died was really the driver. Another passenger, however, says Wied was driving, according to the complaint.
