  • Missouri Court of Appeals overturns the Kelli Smith involuntary manslaughter conviction

    Mile marker 170.2 on Interstate 70 was the scene of a 2012 fatal accident. Kelli Smith was driving west in the eastbound lane at 3:32 a.m. Smith's vehicle slammed into an eastbound car, killing Thomas D. Sullivan. She was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in December 2014. A Missouri Court of Appeals threw out the conviction and the case is back in the Montgomery County courts. Smith's attorney Jennifer Bukowsky believes Smith, who was naked from the waist down, was given a drug and was sexually assaulted before she ended up disoriented on the highway and the crash occurred.
