HATTIESBURG, Miss. – A former Mississippi state trooper has been charged with manslaughter for causing a crash that killed an 81-year-old woman.
Jonathan Johnson was arrested Friday after being indicted by a Forrest County Grand jury. According to the indictment, Johnson “did unlawfully and feloniously kill and slay Thelma Gill, 81, a human being, without malice, by his culpable negligence while he was engaged in the perpetration of the crime of speeding.”
Johnson was also injured in the October 2014 crash, near Camp Shelby.
