FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A Fond du Lac County man has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly killing two people in a drunk driving crash.

24-year-old Daniel Shea of Campbellsport waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday. He pleaded not guilty to two counts of drunken homicide, and one count of causing injury by drunk driving.

Prosecutors said Shea had 7 drinks and two shots of whiskey at 5 taverns, in the hours before his car crossed a center and hit an oncoming auto.

73-year-old Paul Grahl and his 59-year-old wife Joanna, both of Eden, were killed in that second car. Their 13-year-old daughter Esther was seriously injured, and she’s back home after being treated at a Milwaukee hospital.

The crash occurred September 13th on Highway 45 near the Fond du Lac-Washington County line. Prosecutors said Shea’s blood alcohol level was 0.20, two-and-a-half times the legal limit of 0.08.

He wore a cast on his right arm when he appeared in court Thursday.
