Denny Wages's reckless homicide trial continues

He's charged with killing three family members in a car accident in Southern Indiana.  But was it his fault, or a problem with the road?  That is the issue at the Denny Wages trial.

Denny Wages is on trial for reckless homicide.  This is the second trial for Wages.  The first one ended in a hung jury.

Police say in June 2004, Wages's pickup truck crossed the center line on U.S. 150 near Greenville, Indiana.  It hit a car head-on, killing 24-year-old Kimberly Littrell, 27-year-old Bobby Littrell, and their two-year-old daughter, Shelby.

Wednesday's testimony was mostly technical.  An accident re-construction expert from the Indiana State Police testified that it was his conclusion that Wages was going 80 miles an hour just before the fatal collision.  The speed limit is 55.

Although he has recovered, Wages was seriously injured.  He does not remember the accident and is not expected to testify in his own defense.

Late Wednesday afternoon came emotional testimony from the mother of Kimberly Littrell.  Nina Owens said before she was killed, her daughter loved animals and was studying to be a veterinarian.
