Suspect in Crash that Killed 5 Charged with 42 Counts
In Suffolk County, a man who was speeding in a stolen car and caused a chain-reaction crash that killed five people on Valentine’s Day has been charged with a 42-count Indictment.
The suspect, Jamel Turner, is looking at five counts of depraved indifference murder and aggravated vehicular homicide. His indictment includes 37 felony charges.
He was driving a stolen Camaro at the time of the accident and going around 154 miles per hour.
Three of the people who were killed were in the same family. They were 55-year-old Jacquelyn McCoy, her daughter Mary Alice Booker and her son Anthony McCoy. A family friend, Tameka Foster, was also killed. And Turner’s passenger, Lonindell Skinner, also passed away.
