CINCINNATI (AP) — A Cincinnati-are man has been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide for a March accident in which his teenage son’s friend was killed.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters (DEE’-turs) announced Friday that a grand jury also charged 41-year-old Larry Molloy with felony child endangering and tampering with evidence.
No attorney was listed for Molloy.
Authorities say he was driving his son and two friends home from Newport on the Levee in northern Kentucky when he lost control of his Mercedes Benz SUV while topping 100 mph on Interstate 275. One youth was ejected and died. Deters says Molloy was drinking to excess and threw cans with alcoholic drinks off the overpass.
Deters says Molloy could face eight years of mandatory prison time if convicted on the most serious charge.
