So much for that plan.
The grand jury formally charged the driver with first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide, and third-degree aggravated assault.
The attorney claimed this would prevent Roper’s trial from being a fair and impartial one.
Back in August, a National Transportation Safety Board determined the driver had slept in the 28 hours leading up to the accident.
The investigation also revealed that he didn’t slow down before he hit the 47-year-old’s car, even though there were plenty of signs on the highway advising him to do so.
Since he wasn’t in court for the indictment, Kevin is scheduled to be arraigned at some point in the future.
