Bayfield woman pleads facing reckless homicide charge in fatal crash involving daughter


BAYFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A Bayfield woman has pleaded innocent to causing a traffic crash that killed her two-year-old daughter and injured three other relatives.

24-year-old Chelsea Cadotte is charged with second-degree reckless homicide, and three counts of first-degree reckless injury.

The judge in the Bayfield County case will hold a conference May 28th, and is expected to decide when a possible trial could be held.

Authorities said Cadotte was speeding on Highway 13 near Washburn last July, when a child in the back-seat distracted her. It caused the vehicle to swerve several times and then go into a ditch.

The mishap killed Cadotte’s two-year-old daughter Mariah Gordon.

Young Myley and Carter Gordon were injured, along with Cadotte’s teenage sister Erica Gonzalez.

Deputies said the passengers were not wearing seat-belts or safety restraints.
