An Oconomowoc man charged with killing a Good Samaritan back in 2017 pleaded no contest Wednesday.

Frank Schiller was charged with his sixth OWI in September of 2017 after he struck and killed 48-year-old Peter Enns of Canada.

Schiller pleaded no contest for the charge of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle in order to have the other charges against him dropped.

The night of the crash, Schiller allegedly got into an argument with his parents at their house, who called the police on him for drug use. Once officers arrived, Schiller had left the house, supposedly high on a number of different drugs.

Enns was pulled over on I-94 in Delafield helping someone change a flat tire when Schiller tried to pass someone in the shoulder. He hit Enns, who later died at the hospital.

Schiller has a history with impaired driving with four prior OWI convictions before the deadly crash. At the time of the crash, he was out on signature bond for a fifth OWI in March of that year.

Schiller's sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 5.
