Accident Reconstruction Boyfriend Shoots Girlfriend and Then Self, Before Crashing Car

Sheriff’s officials say that a Harrison County High School student shot his girlfriend and then himself.

Sheriff’s officials originally told LEX 18 that the student, 18-year-old Emery Collins, was dead. His family has reached out to LEX 18 saying he is still alive.

Officials tell LEX 18 that the two left school and Collins was driving with his girlfriend to pick up supplies for a project. At some point, they say Collins shot her and then himself. Witnesses say his car went off the road, up a hill, passed by multiple trees and struck the corner of a home off Ruddles Mill Road.

Wrongful Death Murder Recorded on Cell Phone

All five of the teens charged in connection with the robbery and shooting death of a Frankfort delivery driver appeared in court after their indictments in the case.

It was the first Jared Banta’s family saw all five suspects in court at the same time. Banta was found shot to death outside of a Frankfort apartment complex.

According to a recent indictment, Victorya Young, Brooke Kennedy and Cameron Montgomery are accused of setting up Banta the day he was killed. All three of the girls are charged with robbery and complicity to commit murder.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Prosecutors revealed Friday that the robbery and murder were recorded on a cell phone by one of the three girls accused of setting him up. Commonwealth Attorney Larry Cleveland said that text messages before and after the murder tell the story.

“There’s a text that says Victorya Paige is going to get in the car, then Kirshaun and Kiwee (a nickname of one of the suspects) are going to get in, then Paige runs out and that’s exactly what happened, and the icing on the cake, one of the girls videotaped this,” said Cleveland.

Cleveland wouldn’t say which girl recorded the crime.

The two men charged in connection to the crime, Kedrick Burton and Krishaun Mays also entered not guilty pleas. Burton is charged with complicity to murder and robbery. Mays is accused of being the actual triggerman and he is facing charges of murder and robbery.

Jared Banta’s father spoke to LEX 18’s Leigh Searcy briefly after court and told her he is 100% confident that all five will be convicted of their alleged crimes against his son.
