Boater charged in lake crash that killed sisters

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — A Neenah man has been charged in connection with a boating crash that took the lives of two sisters on Lake Winnebago.

Forty-four-year-old Brian Sullivan is facing two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle. The boat he was driving collided with another last summer throwing 20-year-old Cassandra Laabs and her 26-year-old sister Lauren overboard. The women drowned as a result of the Aug. 18 crash.

The sisters' boat was driven by their father, Kim Laabs. Both boat operators blamed the other for the crash. WLUK-TV reports Winnebago County prosecutors say Laabs will not face charges.

Sullivan's initial court appearance is scheduled April 1. Court records do not list an attorney for Sullivan.
