A grand jury will consider charges against a 22-year-old man who police say was drunk when he veered off an interstate highway in northeast Ohio and killed a former police chief who was changing a tire.
Picha was being held with a $50,000 bond on a preliminary charge of aggravated vehicular homicide. Other charges will be considered by the county grand jury. No attorney information was available.
Picha told police he swerved to avoid two people standing in the middle of the road before he crashed.
