A Missouri Man Is Sentenced to 20 Years For Causing a Crash That Killed His Girlfriend

A man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for, among other things, causing a 2020 crash into a swollen eastern Missouri creek that killed his girlfriend.

Cole Michael McCall, 23, was sentenced after pleading guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old Jennelle Wulfmeier, prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday. McCall also pleaded guilty of tampering, forgery, leaving the scene of an accident and auto theft, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Prosecutors said Wulfmeier was a passenger in McCall’s pickup truck when he crashed into a flooded creek in Elsberry, abandoned it with Wulfmeier still trapped inside, stole a car and then crashed it before being arrested.
