MONROE - An Ida man was arraigned last week in Monroe County District Court on a negligent homicide charge involving the death of a 20-year-old woman.
Charles A. Schroeder, 27, faces a Jan. 22 pretrial in connection with the death of Katie Ann Ruff of Newport, Mich., who died after being tossed from his all-terrain vehicle in August.
Mr. Schroeder was driving Ms. Ruff though a field on his property in the early morning of Aug. 13 when he turned and struck a large pile of logs, according the county prosecutor's office.
Ms. Ruff was transported to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center following the accident. She died there a week later.
