14-year-old will be tired as an adult in fatal drag-racing case

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A judge has ordered a 14-year-old girl to be tried as an adult, after she allegedly killed a bicyclist while drag racing in a stolen car in Milwaukee.

Illahje Davis is charged with reckless homicide, hit-and-run causing death, and two counts of vehicle theft. Prosecutors said she and other teens were racing in a pair of stolen vehicles on a business street just east of Milwaukee’s Timmerman Airport last August.

Police said Davis’s car struck-and-killed 57-year-old Ronald Forbes as he was bicycling to work. The girl was ordered to stand trial on the adult charges before her lawyer filed a request to have the case heard in juvenile court. Circuit Judge Dennis Cimpl turned down that request yesterday.

Davis is currently at the Lincoln Hills state school for juvenile offenders near Irma in Lincoln County. An arraignment date on her charges ie expected to be set at a status conference on May 23rd.
