WAUPACA, Wis. - A prosecutor in Waupaca County wants to consolidate the trials of three men accused of using their snowmobiles to kill some deer for the thrill of it.
Robby and Rory Kuenzi and Nicholas Hermes are accused of rounding up the deer with their sleds, then running them down Jan. 9 in the Town of Lind.
The Kuenzi brothers have pleaded not guilty. Hermes has not yet entered pleas for the felony charges against him.
The attorney for Rory Kuenzi, of Weyauwega, told Waupaca County Judge Philip Kirk Tuesday that he plans to file a motion seeking a change of venue because of publicity about the case.
