CROOKSTON, Minn. (AP) - A Crookston man is accused of driving drunk in a motorcycle crash that killed his wife in September.

Forty-four-year-old Corey Reitmeier was charged by summons with criminal vehicular homicide. He is scheduled to make his first appearance in Polk County court Thursday.

Reitmeier’s wife, 43-year-old Wendy Reitmeier, was seated behind him when their motorcycle collided with a deer on a county road in northwestern Minnesota on Sept. 28.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1nYxa3R ) reports Corey Reitmeier’s blood alcohol content after the crash was measured at 0.18 percent, more than twice Minnesota’s legal limit.

Neither Reitmeier nor his wife was wearing a helmet. The complaint says Wendy Reitmeier died from “extensive head trauma.”

A phone message left for Reitmeier was not immediately returned Monday. The office of his defense attorney declined comment.
