CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire grand jury has indicted a former Fortune 500 executive on second-degree murder charges in a crash that killed a Vermont couple in December.

Robert Dellinger, 53, told investigators he was trying to kill himself when he steered his pickup truck across an Interstate 89 median in Lebanon. His truck went airborne, shearing off the top of the SUV occupied by 29-year-old Jason Timmons of Wilder and his 24-year-old wife, Amanda Murphy, who was eight months pregnant.

The Grafton County Superior Court indictments were released Tuesday. They charge Dellinger with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Timmons and Murphy and with second-degree assault in the death of the fetus.

Dellinger earlier pleaded not guilty. He is a former senior vice president and chief financial officer at PPG Industries. He also worked for Sprint, Delphi and General Electric.
