Ed Treleven | Wisconsin State JournalMay 25, 2019

A rural Monroe woman was convicted Friday of a homicide charge for a traffic crash in 2017 that killed a New Glarus man.

Janice L. Teasdale, 35, pleaded no contest to homicide by driving with a detectable controlled substance in her blood for an Aug. 11, 2017, crash that killed John F. Marty, 79, and injured a passenger in his vehicle.

The crash happened on Highway 69 near Argue Road in the town of Montrose. Teasdale was charged for the crash in June 2018.

A plea agreement between prosecutors and Teasdale’s lawyer, Jason Gonzalez, does not contain a sentencing recommendation. Dane County Circuit Judge John Hyland, who will sentence Teasdale on Aug. 2, could sentence her to up to 25 years of combined prison and extended supervision.
