Jefferson County man pleads guilty to two counts of manslaughter in auto fatality

December 7, 2012


A 32-year-old Nortonville man pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of involuntary manslaughter In Jefferson County District Court stemming from a double-fatality accident in March.

Brian J. Keefe also pleaded guilty to two counts of driving under the influence, said Jefferson County Attorney Jason Belveal.

Keefe's vehicle veered left of center during a two-vehicle accident that killed two occupants of another vehicle, 38-year-old Shawn K. Fraker of Winchester and 27-year-old Daniel Shawn Walker of Oskaloosa.

The crash occurred on Hickory Point Road about six miles north of Oskaloosa and just southwest of Winchester.

While Keefe was out on bond for the March accident, he was arrested again for DUI in August.

Keefe is scheduled for sentencing Jan. 10. Belveal said Keefe is likely to serve a prison sentence of between 38 to 86 months.

So kills two people, out on bond and then gets another OUI. This is just terrible. How many more free passes can you give somebody that has killed somebody. They need to throw the book at him on this.

The judge has to follow the law, put the law makers in the same jail cel, they make the dumb laws.

I give him credit for pleading guilty. The man will be haunted the rest of his life by the people he killed. He will go to prison. I don't need to kick him while he's down.

I think you would kick him if it was your son or daughter that he killed.
