TOMAHAWK, WI (WTAQ) - A motorcyclist is charged in the drunk driving death of another biker during last month's Harley-Davidson Fall Ride at Tomahawk. 

50-year-old Lynette Haman Elkhorn is due in Oneida County Circuit Court November 18th. She's charged with two felony counts of causing homicide by drunk driving, and with a prohibited blood alcohol content. 

Sheriff's officials said Haman's motorcycle turned left in the path of an oncoming bike at an intersection north of Tomahawk on September 13th. 

The other motorcyclist, 50-year-old Benjamin Guite Sr. of Merrill, died a short time later at a Wausau hospital.
