This is a reall sad case. The woman killed has 3 children ages 2 - 9 AND it is my understanding the driver was ON PROBATION for his 4th DWI! He had also violated his probation for the previous DWI with getting another DWI and was awaiting trial on that! I thought probation violators couldn't get out on bond to await trial? He should have been in jail already!

At what point will North Carolina take this guy off the streets and lock him up? He's now been charged with Aggravated Felony Death by Vehicle and ANOTHER DWI (I think this makes 5 in less than 2 years) and he still isn't in jail! What's the deal here?

Hopefully now that someone has died and 3 children are left without a mother something will be done. It is sad to know that it takes someone dying before the state will step in and do something with people that re offend. I would hate for my family to be on any roads that he is traveling on. It would be like playing Russian roulette.

Why do we cater to these habitual offenders? A person with that many DWIs is not likely to stop drinking. Why even give them probation after the first couple DWI's? It seems the story ends this way much too often. Someone has to die before the state does anything. My heart goes out to those 3 little girls...

How can someone who obviously has no regard for the lives of his children or anybody else for that matter have been out of jail awaiting trial. I hope he feels the torment every day for the rest of his life for taking his kid's mother away from them.

This sort of thing is so shocking and sad. I can't believe this guy is still on the streets! And those poor kids! I would hope that DSS or some authority would be dropping by unannounced to check on those kids.

Amen Sista. "Unannounced" being the key word. The family has asked DSS if he is being drug tested randomly and their response was they cannot tell the family since that would violate his privacy rights. The family didn't ask what the results were, just if he was being drug tested! We wouldn't want to violate the guy's privacy now would we? Those poor children don't have a chance!

There are to many people like him out on the streets. The troopers round them up and charge them. The court system sets them free. Then they kill a person and it is on the news asking why was this person still out driving drunk. It's to late then. People have had a loved one killed.
They should be jailed long term after the second DUI. sad case.

You asked if there were any updates? Well, Lori, a mother of 3 children between the ages of 2 - 9 is still dead, the children are being raised by persons unknown to Lori's family, and North Carolina's "tough on drunk drivers" campaign is a joek.

I would correctly label them a match made in hell! Wouldn't you? She brags that she will one day kill an innocent family while driving drunk? Is that really a joke to her?
Lock these drunken murderers and potential murderers up. The courts should show them no mercy just as they show none to their victims.

I wouldn't call them white trash!
drunks, addicts, murderers maybe. Can be any race though.
Point is drunks who kill people should get the same sentence as a person who shoots and kills a person. Murder is murder.
