Judge throws out ex-bishop's sobriety tests
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Dane County judge has thrown out sobriety tests given to a former bishop charged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a jogger last year.
But Judge Nicholas McNamara ruled prosecutors can still use blood drawn from Bruce Burnside after the crash.
Defense attorney John Hyland says he might appeal the decision. But because Burnside's trial is scheduled to begin May 12, Hyland didn't know whether the court would accept an appeal.
Burnside is charged in the April 7, 2013, death of Maureen Mengelt.
Burnside is no longer employed by the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
