No Charges Yet in Brau Death 21 Aug 14

The Wright County Attorney’s Office says they are still waiting for reports from the Minnesota State Patrol before they can decide what charges, if any, a teen will face after a fatal motorcycle crash that killed a Willmar man.

KWLM report the Sheriff’s Office says the incident that occurred one week ago today (Thursday) is still under investigation and it may take another week or more to get the reports.
