DAILYKENN.com -- T. J. Freeman is dead.
The Bibbs County, Georgia deputy sheriff was killed May 5, 2016 while pursuing Martavius Taquan Kinder. Kinder was charged with three counts of homicide by vehicle.
Kinder is black. Freeman was white.
Charges against Kinder were reported July 19, 2016.
Freeman, 29, had come to the aid of other deputies who were pursing a suspicious vehicle about 3 a.m.
Kinder, 24, is accused of eluding deputy Omar Sanders, failing to stop a Toyota Camry he was driving on Buena Vista Drive at Columbus Road despite being given audible and visual signals to stop, according to the indictment.
Driving in excess of 20 mph above the posted speed limit and “in traffic conditions which place the general public at risk,” Kinder broadsided Freeman’s Dodge Magnum patrol car, sending it spinning into the brick porch of a nearby house and fatally injuring Freeman, according to indictment.
Authorities also allege that Kinder was driving under the influence of marijuana and in “reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property by failing to obey traffic control devices and stop signs,” according to the indictment.
