Investigation into car accident leads to murder charges

Losing a child is one of the most devastating events a parent could experience. However, it is possible for such an event to take even more difficult turns if a parent is accused of having a hand in the child's death. As a result, the parent could end up having to defend against murder charges.

It was recently reported that a woman in Ohio is facing such a scenario. In January of this year, the woman was driving a vehicle with her daughter and son inside when they were involved in a crash with a tractor-trailer. The daughter, whose age was not given in the report, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash, and the 6-year-old son was seriously injured.

An investigation into the accident has concluded that the woman intentionally pulled out in front of the tractor-trailer. As a result, she was recently taken into custody and is facing charges for aggravated murder, murder, attempted murder, attempted aggravated murder, felonious assault and endangering children. Though formal charges have resulted, the report noted that the investigation was still underway.

Allegations of murder in any capacity are devastating, but this mother is undoubtedly horrified to have such charges brought against her in connection with her daughter's death. Of course, the case is far from over. She has the opportunity to defend against the allegations brought against her in Ohio court, and it may prove useful to her to understand her available legal options to the best of her ability.
