LA CROSSE, Wis. — A woman accused of reckless homicide in the death of her husband in La Crosse County is out of jail on a signature bond.
Lori Ann Phillips, 50, who recently moved to Winona, Minnesota, was charged last week in the February 2019 death of Mark Phillips.
The 48-year-old man was found in a snowbank along the couple's driveway in Holmen. An autopsy report listed the cause of death as multiple blunt force injuries, and that the manner of death was undetermined.
A $50,000 signature bond was set Tuesday on a charge of second-degree reckless homicide.
Prosecutors said the couple was arguing outside the night before Phillips was found dead and that the defendant drove off with the passenger side door open to a pickup truck. She found her husband the next morning.
