A man and a woman were indicted Wednesday in an alleged road rage-related crash on Interstate 10 near Highland Road in March that killed five people, including three children.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged David Leger, 29, with five counts of vehicular homicide and Kelsye Hall, 22, with five counts of negligent homicide.
District Attorney Hillar Moore III said Leger, of Palmetto, faces five to 30 years in prison on each count if convicted. Hall, of Baton Rouge, faces two to five years in prison on each count if convicted.
The crash killed Kimberly Stagg, 19, and Effie Fontenot, 29, both of Prairieville, and Fontenot’s three young sons.
Leger’s blood-alcohol level was 0.10 percent, an arrest warrant said. In Louisiana, a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent and above is considered presumptive evidence of intoxication.
