The man accused of killing a Lake Mills Fire Department captain is heading to trial, according to court records. Samuel Cremers is accused of killing fire Capt. Christopher Truman. Truman had stopped on the side of the Beltline Monday night to help another driver. Cremers hit Truman after Truman exited the vehicle. Originally, Cremers was arrested on a tentative charge of homicide by drunken driving. He blew a .079 during a breathalyzer test, which is below Wisconsin’s legal limit to drive. Cremers is now charged with knowingly operating a vehicle with a suspended license. In court Wednesday, Cremers waived his preliminary hearing. He stood mute and a not guilty plea was entered. He was then bound over for trial. Cremers' jury trial is not scheduled at this time.
