A Chippewa County judge won't dismiss charges against the 22-year-old man accused of huffing chemicals before causing the hit-and-run accident which left three Wisconsin Girl Scouts and an adult dead.

Colten Treu made a court appearance Friday for a preliminary hearing. His attorney told the court there was no evidence he had been huffing, pointing to testing which didn't find any chemicals in his blood. The Girl Scouts were picking up litter along a highway in Lake Hallie when they were killed in the November accident.
