Kenosha man charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide

Fifty-one-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin resident Scott Saunders was recently charged with felony counts of criminal recklessness, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon (his vehicle), involuntary manslaughter, and reckless homicide in connection with a vehicular accident that he caused on Jan. 8, 2013 at the intersection of Doyle Road and U.S. Route 30 just east of New Haven, Indiana that resulted in the death of two women.

Saunders was also charged for other minor offenses, such as disregarding a lighted signal, failure to yield the right of way, following too closely, and speeding.

Police investigators did not find any evidence that Saunders tried to stop the truck to avoid the collision. Saunders told investigators that he was driving 50 miles per hour at the time of the accident. The indictment filed against him said he “acted in plain, conscious, and unjustified disregard for the harm that might result of his conduct.”
