WHITEHALL, Wis. (WQOW) - A western Wisconsin man is going to prison for his role in a crash that killed a woman.

Micah Harris, from Trempealeau, was sentenced Friday to six years in prison for the 2020 crash that killed 57-year-old Monica Knepper of Trempealeau. Investigators say he had methamphetamine in his system when his truck crossed the center line and hit her car.
