This appears to be a great miscarriage of justice.
Apparently the defendent "accidently" struck
the trucker....How can this be "murder". Any of us could have been driving that road.
The national media need to get involved in this one...a perfect piece for "60 Minutes"...maybe some fine citizen of your county needs to make the call...to CNN....

Why was this Ashland man charged of murder? Did he swerve & hit this person on purpose? No I don't think so....Think about it.This person has to live with this for the rest. Ain't that enough.What if it was you? It wouldn't be quite fair would it.

They probably just used the wrong termiology...its probably supposed to be vehicular homicide...

wantonly engaged in conduct that created a grave risk of death to another person
This is the issue. The article doesn't explain it. If you're interested, go to the trial or keep up with this case. At some point it will be disclosed exactly what type of behaviour was exhibited.
Just as example, the man might have been speeding. This would be enough for charges to be filed if the accident results in death or injury. Don't forget, a charge is a starting point in terms of plea bargaining.
