New charges have been filed against the man accused of hitting and killing three Girl Scouts and a mother in a hit-and-run in rural northwestern Wisconsin.

The four were killed in November while they picked up trash along a Chippewa County highway. Vehicular homicide charges were filed against 21-year-old Colten Treu, who authorities say inhaled chemical vapors before he crashed his pickup truck into them.
