by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Pulaski man has been charged in the weekend motorcycle crash that killed his wife.

31-year-old Jonathan R. Cherney appeared in court Monday and was charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle.

Early Sunday morning, the motorcycle Cherney was driving lost control at the intersection of Highway 32 and County Highway B in Pulaski. Investigators say Cherney's 29-year-old wife Anna was killed.

Cherney was treated and released from a hospital.

Authorities indicated that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. Prosecutors say Cherney's blood alcohol content was .125, above the .08 legal limit.

Neither person was wearing a helmet at the time.

A judge set Cherney's bond at $25,000.
