Treu's passenger told police the pair was huffing the air duster while they were driving.

Treu is being held on $250,000 bond.

Defense attorney Kirby Harless asked for a smaller bond, saying the girl has lived her whole life in the area and there is no reason to think she wouldn't attend a future court hearing. One additional 10-year-old is still in the hospital, but they say she is reported to be in stable condition. The latter's mother Sara Jo Schneider, 32, was also killed.

A black truck heading northbound on CTH-P veered out of its lane, crossing over the center line and left the road entirely into the west side ditch line striking 5 members of the group. Colten Treu, 21, faces multiple counts of homicide.

The day after the boy's death, the girl "initially denied any intentional acts in harming the infant, but later confessed to her involvement", sheriff's officials allege. A passenger in Treu's truck told police he grabbed the steering wheel when he saw that Treu "looked out of it".

The Girl Scouts out on the highway that day were all fourth-graders at Halmstad and Southview elementary schools in the Chippewa Falls School District. They were picking up litter off a western Wisconsin highway Saturday morning when they were hit by the truck.

Ms Schneider said the deaths of her daughter and granddaughter were "still not real for any of us".

"She would like to return home, and given her age, that may be appropriate", Harless said, according to the Associated Press. Authorities said Treu sped off after the collision, but surrendered hours later.

Treu appeared in Chippewa County Court just after 11 a.m. Monday.

"She has to be treated as an adult", Newell said. He says Treu does not yet have an attorney.

Though Judy Schneider is grieving the loss of her daughter and granddaughter who were killed in an alleged hit-and-run in Wisconsin, she said the two "needed to be together".

In court, Newell said a medical pathologist believed the baby's injuries were consistent with a fall and the tread marks on his head matched those of the suspect's shoes.
