I don't understand why the murder charges. Murder mean intentional not accidental. She didn't murder him on purpose. Ok, She was drunk and driving and I understand she needs to go to prison maybe but not for murder. Vehicular homicide maybe. Even the assault charge also. I just don't get it. Is it because he is a sheriff's officer or what. Lubbock wanted a wet county well now you have one just like Wolfforth. The county is as to blame as this woman. Martin

I agree that the government has a terrible double standard. If an officer (detective) crashes a municipal vehicle into a garbage truck and injures a child, he continues to receive paychecks from the city, and receives no charges for the injury to the child. However, when an officer is injured or killed in a crash, the opposing party is charged with murder (premeditated) instead of manslaughter.

As Yellowbeard said: Never trust a woman or a government.

If you read the aritcle she had 3 prior convictions of DWI, so regardless if he was an officer she took the life of a man. The outcome would of been the same if it would of been either one of you in the truck
