On Wednesday, a grand jury in South Carolina handed down an indictment against a woman who is suspected of killing a South Carolina bride in April while she was driving under the influence and collided with a golf cart that was transporting the newlyweds.
According to a copy of the indictment that has been filed against Jamie Komoroski, he was taken into custody in Charleston County on accusations of reckless homicide, felony DUI resulting in death, and two counts of felony DUI resulting in significant bodily harm. These charges were brought against him after he was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and causing the death of another person.
Since the judge denied Komoroski’s request for bail a month ago, he has been held at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center where he has been held for the past few months.
Samantha Miller, 34 years old, was killed on the night of her wedding, April 28, when a vehicle rear-ended the golf cart she was riding in. The Folly Beach Department of Public Safety made the announcement.
A statement on Aric Hutchinson’s injuries was posted on the GoFundMe website in the month of May by the groom’s family. The message stated that Hutchinson had shattered bones and suffered brain damage as a result of the tragedy.
When she crashed into the cart, Komoroski was reportedly traveling at a speed of 65 miles per hour in an area where the speed limit was 25 miles per hour. Following the incident, a toxicology study indicated that Komoroski’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was more than three times the permissible limit.
After the charge was brought to light on Wednesday, her attorney, Christopher Gramiccioni, declined to comment on the matter to NBC News.
When he first appeared in court, he defended Komoroski by stating that she had “zero criminal history.”
