Jury Trial Scheduled For Horicon Man Facing Vehicular Homicide Charges

(Oak Grove) A weeklong jury trial was scheduled Friday for a Horicon man facing Vehicular Homicide charges. Daniel Bryfczynski is facing four felony charges including Injury by Use of a Vehicle with a Controlled Substance along with Operating with a Restricted Controlled Substance Causing Injury, Second Offense.

Prosecutors say Bryfczynski had multiple drugs in his system at the time of the crash last June in the town of Oak Grove. The 48-year-old allegedly admitted to law enforcement that he fell asleep behind the wheel before crossing the centerline on Highway 33. A 50-year-old Lake Mills woman was killed.

When questioned, Bryfczynski reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day while fishing. He apparently told officers that the effects of the drug had worn off prior to getting off the water. Investigators searched the boat and allegedly found four-and-a-half grams of marijuana. A blood test revealed positive amounts of not only marijuana but also cocaine, ketamine, and opiates.

If convicted, Bryfczynski faces over 62 years behind bars. The trial is slated to begin on April 10th.
