Second trial delayed in fatal I-10 crash


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A St. Landry Parish man will be tried July 7, not later this month, on vehicular homicide charges in an alleged road rage- and alcohol-related Interstate 10 crash in Baton Rouge that killed five Ascension Parish residents.

Attorney Tommy Damico, who represents David Leger, told The Advocate Tuesday the April 28 trial date was bumped because his accident reconstructionist needed more time.

The 31-year-old Leger faces five to 30 years in prison on each of five vehicular homicide counts if found guilty as charged in the March 13, 2011, collision.

State District Judge Trudy White convicted 24-year-old Kelsye Hall in August on five counts of negligent homicide in the crash and sentenced her in October to two years in prison.
