Woman Charged In Homicide


Rejects Plea Deal


A woman charged with Homicide by Vehicle will stand trial on charges in the Cameron County Court.

Kaitlyn N. (Crosby) Wolfel, age 23, of Austin, turned down a plea deal negotiated by Deputy Attorney General George Zaiser and her defense attorney, Gary Knaresboro, Esquire, during jury call proceedings held Tuesday at the Cameron County Courthouse. Today was Wolfel’s last day to accept a negotiated plea.

The family members of Wolfel’s two victims were present and had expected Wolfel to accept the deal.

Jury selection for Wolfel and several other defendants will take place next Tuesday, July 26. A trial date has not yet been scheduled, but proceedings must be held prior to the next jury selection date at the end of September.
