CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A former Fortune 500 executive charged with second-degree murder in a New Hampshire crash that killed a Vermont couple has waived a hearing on the evidence against him.
Fifty-three-year-old Robert Dellinger of Sunapee remains in custody in the Dec. 7 accident on Interstate 89 in Lebanon that killed 29-year-old Jason Timmons and 24-year-old Amanda Murphy of Wilder, Vt. Murphy was eight-months pregnant. The unborn child did not survive.
Dellinger told police he was depressed and trying to kill himself when he steered the truck he was driving across the median and became airborne, shearing off the top of the couple's SUV.
His lawyer said Dellinger waived his Tuesday court appearance after prosecutors turned over investigative reports.
The case will be transferred to Grafton County Superior Court for indictment.
