Vehicular Homicide defendant Roy Serie heads to court

Roy Serie heads to court this afternoon. He's the man whose actions allegedly lead to the vehicular homicide of his own wife and Shannon Cox and severely injured Beth Zilbert of Lake Charles. Zilbert will use her therapy dog Luke to testify in court.

It was May 5, 2010 when Serie was driving on Highway 165.  He allegedly began to run off the road twice and finally crashed into the car with Cox and Zilbert.

Cox was dead at the scene and Zilbert was severely injured.  As well, Serie's wife Sheila was killed.

Blood tests allegedly revealed that Roy Serie's blood contained THC, the drug found in marijuana. Serie is a teacher and coach at Ville Platte High School in Evangeline Parish.
