Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin resident Adam Neuhaus was charged on Thursday, March 10 with one count of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle and hit-and-run involving injury. These charges are related to a fatal vehicular accident that occurred on Aug. 23, 2015 at around 8:30 p.m. in Germantown, claiming the life of 50-year-old Germantown resident Keith Habenicht.

Neuhaus was arrested the following day of the accident on Aug. 24, 2015, but he refused to make a statement or cooperate with police officials to conduct a proper investigation, police said.
