Woman Fails to Face Vehicular Homicide Charges
Washington County is on the look out for a woman who failed to appear in court to face a vehicular homicide charge. 24-year old Andrea Leigh Nantz skipped her fourth court date after posting a 50-thousand dollar bond. Nantz told Judge Lynn Brown that she intended to hire an attorney and she cannot be arraigned on the charge until she has one. Assistant District Attorney General Janet Vest Hardin opposed the judge’s decision to give her more time to hire a lawyer. Nantz is accused of using a cell phone and having drugs in her system when she crashed into a parked car on Highway 11E in Greene County. 77-year old Floyd Watts of Greeneville died from injuries he sustained when Nantz hit his Subaru Outback as it was parked on the eastbound shoulder of the highway. Watts was taken to Johnson City Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. After the indictment was served on Nantz, District Attorney General Tony Clark said toxicology results showed several drugs in her system, but the levels were too low to charge her with vehicular homicide by intoxication which would have meant a stronger punishment. Vehicular homicide is a Class C felony that carries three to 15 years in prison depending on the defendant’s prior record. (bg)
