LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse County man charged in a snowmobile crash that killed his girlfriend has died in an all-terrain vehicle crash in northern Wisconsin.

Thirty-one-year-old John Marshall, of Brice Prairie, died Saturday in a crash on the north side of Birch Lake in the Town of Edgewater.

Marshall was charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle in a January 2016 crash that killed 27-year-old Miranda Roellich in the Town of Onalaska. The La Crosse Tribune says a La Crosse County judge dismissed the charges after finding that prosecutors didn't have enough evidence to substantiate them.

Marshall was later charged with a misdemeanor in his girlfriend's death and pleaded guilty. He served 60 days of house arrest.
