WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Wausau prosecutors have asked that a 16-year-old girl be found delinquent in the deaths of two young girls in an SUV crash.
The girl appeared in Marathon County juvenile court Wednesday.
The district attorney's office asked for a change of venue, because all of the county's judges know the suspect's grandparents. As a result, Oneida County Circuit Judge Michael Bloom was assigned to the case.
Authorities said 10 people jammed into an SUV last Friday to go on a picnic at the Eau Claire Dells County Park. Their vehicle lost control and rolled over several times about 12 miles northeast of Wausau on Highway 52.
Two 12-year-old girls -- Reighlee Stevenson and Deserae Landowski -- died in the crash. A boy who was critically injured had his condition upgraded to serious Wednesday.
The other 7 youngsters were treated at hospitals and later released.
