The trial is finally scheduled. I'm sure the jury will find Mr. Merrill guilty... there is no doubt ya know ... and sentence him to the maximum... 30 years.

Good to know that he's been in jail this holiday season. At least he couldn't put others in danger by using and driving again.

I think he also had an adult female (wife?) and a child in the cab of the pickup.

PLUS... he has TWO felony burgulary convictions!!

WOW! Does noone down here take any responsibility for their own actions, stop blaming everyone else and be held accountable?

pardoe: Mr. Merrill may be your friend... but he's made a few SERIOUSLY wrong choices. One of his choices ended the lives of two very well-liked people of the area. Merrill brought pain and suffering to all of their relatives too... and not for just a short period of time either. Merrill must take responsibility for his choices and the end result... which will be prison.

We can only hope that this tragedy put Merrill away for a very long time.

hey pardoe a lot of good people decide to do something illegal or wrong then anyone separates themselves from being a good person that makes good decision they will then have to deal with consequence's you can only hope that the stupidity of the decision of no longer making a good decision or being a good person doesn't affect the lives of others. But some are so wrong such as drunk driving or anything illegal that can have an affect on the lives of others that once the decison is made such as getting behind a wheel drunk and killing people you cant come back from it! i dont know the people that died nor anyone in the whole situation i just know someone that was good that became bad and i saw this young guy and heard his name when i was in contact and was curios as to why he is in a hardcore level 5 prison probbaly being treated like some ones girlfriend and looked up his name and saw this so since your so concerned why dont you be a adovacte for people that decide to drink n drive and end up someones boytoy in a hardcore prison then try to sell him as the victim and blame it on the girl which i agree she was less then stupid by putting herself in the situation but in the end he comitted the crime im sure now he might feel bad but what good is that he is someones man toy in a prison and that family will never have their loved one back put your energy and anger to something positive that might save someone from that same "good person" decision and as for the loved ones sleep well knowing he is in a level 5 prison with serious lifers that feel they are all "good people" and when they decide to deal with him the way they feel i hope his family thinks they are "good people" sorry for your loss and know he is paying for it its not nice where he is at period!
