Woman who pleaded guilty in deadly crash sent back to jail


ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana woman who pleaded guilty for her role in a hit-and-run crash that killed three people has been returned to jail after violating probation.

Penelope Grosswiler, 43, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for hiding evidence related to the August 2017 crash, in which a vehicle driven by her husband, Leonard Grosswiler, struck and killed a man and two children in Elkhart.

Penelope Grosswiler was sentenced to 2 ½ years, with six months suspended.

The Elkhart Truth reports a judge returned Grosswiler to jail Thursday to serve her suspended time after she admitted testing positive for a prescription painkiller.
