FOND DU LAC (NBC 26) — A judge in Fond du Lac County set bond for 20-year-old Annaka Trudell, who was arrested in connection with a Feb. 13 homicide, at $2 million.

Trudell was arrested for First-Degree Reckless Homicide in connection tothe death of 33-year-old Ashley Calo. She has not yet been charged in this case, but prosecutors say they’re still investigating and Trudell could face more serious charges.

One of Calo’s friends spoke at the hearing.

"[Ashley] was a really good person, a beautiful mom,” friend Aleasha Hood said. “It's unfair her life was taken from her the way that it was."

Also on Tuesday, Trudell made her initial appearance in regards to a charge of possession of THC with the intent to distribute.

Police also arrested 21-year-old Dawson Lee Miller, for harboring or aiding a felon.

Prosecutors say he helped Trudell hide from authorities, and in a separate hearing also on Tuesday, the judge set his bond at $1 million.

The state said they hope to file formal charges for Trudell and Miller within the next week.
