Stark County State’s Attorney Tom Henning and Menges’ lawyer Ryan Heintz are in the midst of coming to an agreement regarding the charges against Menges — a Class B felony for leaving the scene of an accident involving a death and a Class B felony for negligent homicide.

A trial was set for Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving, but that will either be canceled or rescheduled, depending on the outcome of the agreement.

On Nov. 21, 2012, at approximately 1 a.m., Freer was struck and killed by a gray pickup.

During an April court date, Dickinson Police Department Investigator Travis Leintz testified that Menges believed he was the one who struck and killed Freer. Menges allegedly came forward with that information in March.
