JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky.(WSAZ)-- A woman from Johnson County has been charged with aggravated DUI in connection with a crash that killed a teenager Friday night.

Myra Castle, 53, of Wittensville, was arraigned on the misdemeanor charge in Johnson County District Court Monday morning.

Sheriff Dwayne Price says C.J. Mollett, 18, of Flat Gap, was killed when his motorcycle was hit head-on along Ky. 201 in Wittensville about 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Following the crash, investigators said they believed alcohol was a factor in the accident.

According to the Kentucky State Police incident report, Castle told troopers at the hospital following the crash that she had been drinking vodka earlier in the day.

During Monday’s hearing, Castle’s bond was amended to $50,000 cash or property with home confinement. She is expected back in court on September 4

she needs to be charged with MURDER nothing less than the death penalty. from what i saw marked on the road the boy was all the way over to edge near the ditch and had no where to go. now he is dead because of a drunk.
this needs to stop. an innocence boy lost his life because of some old drunk. she needs to pay for the rest of her life and thats still not enough. bitch

drunk or sober she crossed the center lane and hit the boy. she is still liable for his death. I hope they lose everything they have because of it. they have been snobs and its coming home to roost.

Do you know something your not telling us? Did she seek out and premeditate to run him over. You will have a hard time proving that this was murder unless you know something you not telling.

Its murder in the communities eyes and that is all that counts at this time. We have lived here so long we know its who you know that gets you by with "MURDER" but she will always be known as such. Get use to it.

I don't think you even know what that word means. It doesn't even apply in this case. If you're trying to be funny it isn't working either. This is not a joke.

It sounds as if a vigilante mob is about to erupt. I hope cooler heads prevail. Some of the people in the county have gotten upset with me when I said "it isn't murder." I think the sheriff needs to make a public service announcement. And soon!

have you people forgotten this woman under the influence got behind a wheel of a huge vehicle and ran a young man down on his side of the road? she will never get this area to forget what she did.

have you all forgot that a funeral is being held on Wednesday for this young man. his family and many many of his friends are in grief. this woman is not very well thought of at this moment and a lot hope more charges are brought to her soon.

I am sure blood was taken by ksp and the results will come back. Burchett's case will then go to the grand jury and the felony charge will be put on her there. the misdemeanor dui will be upgraded then

Mr CJ, I did not know you, but you had your entire life just beginning until Myra Castle took it from you.

Ms. Castle do you have children? Did you watch them grow up? CJ wont get that chance because you had to go get drunk and get behind the wheel.

You are the lowest of low, Myra. A digusting piece of poop.

I hope you burn in H#ll for your actions.

CJ rest in peace as justice will be served.
