By Jason Arndt

Anna Wright, of Twin Lakes, has been bound over for trial after she appeared in Kenosha County Circuit Court for a preliminary hearing on allegations she ran over her 38-year-old boyfriend with her Jeep.

According to online court records, Court Commissioner David Berman found probable cause a felony was committed.

Wright’s next scheduled appearance in Kenosha County Circuit is for May 23.

Wright, 29, held on a $25,000 cash bond, faces felony counts of Homicide by Intoxicated Use of a Vehicle and Knowingly Operate a Vehicle without a Valid License – Causing Death.

If convicted of both charges, Wright could see up to 31 years in prison, a criminal complaint states.

The incident, the criminal complaint contends, happened shortly after midnight April 11 in the 34000 block of 110th Street, where authorities received a 911 call from Wright stating another motorist hit her boyfriend, Brian Engelhart, of Waukegan, Ill.

When authorities arrived at about 1:30 a.m., they allegedly found Wright kneeling next to Engelhart, who was reportedly unconscious, but breathing with several head lacerations and facial fractures.

In turn, rescue personnel responded, transporting Engelhart to Aurora Medical Center in Burlington, where he was pronounced dead at 2:30 a.m.

Meanwhile, as authorities questioned Wright, she allegedly changed her version of the story multiple times, the complaint states.

“The defendant stated that she and Mr. Engelhart were at her residence nearby and were arguing about drugs,” the complaint reports.

While Wright continued to change her version of the story, a deputy discovered her in possession of drug paraphernalia, and in turn, allegedly admitted to using cocaine hours earlier.

After authorities arrested and transported Wright to the Kenosha County Jail, she allegedly admitted to corrections personnel that she “just killed my boyfriend.”

In her April 12 bond appearance, she received citations for operating a motor vehicle without insurance, operating while under the influence and operating while suspended, causing death.
