Skier's death


A Maryland snowboarder has filed a guilty plea to a charge of criminally negligent homicide for the death last year of a Shrewsbury woman who was skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming.

Greg Doda, 18, entered a guilty plea Tuesday for killing skier Heather Donahue when he collided with the 29-year-old woman while snowboarding down Laramie Bowl, according to court documents, the Jackson Hole Daily reports today.

Donahue died the day after the Feb. 24, 2005, crash.

The Associated Press reports this afternoon that the guilty plea is not a done deal. The judge is on leave and hasn't reviewed the filing.
