OSAGE, Iowa – A criminal charge has been filed in a fatal Mitchell County crash.

Justin William Slaichert, 22 of St. Ansgar, is accused of supplying alcohol to someone under the legal age, resulting in death. That is a class “D” felony in Iowa, punishable by up to five years in prison.

On January 6, Hannah Nichole Pfeifer, 19, was killed in a crash near the intersection of Highway 105 and Grain Millers Drive in St. Ansgar. Authorities say she drove off the road and hit a tree. Her vehicle was discovered around 1:40 a.m.

Law enforcement says its investigation found that Pfeifer had a blood alcohol content of .154 at the time of the crash, almost twice the legal limit, and that she had been drinking before the crash at the Carpenter Community Center. Court documents state that Slaichert, who is identified as Pfeifer’s boyfriend, admitted to buying her three beers at the Community Center on the evening of January 5.

Slaichert is set to be arraigned on April 24.
