A drunken driver ran into and killed a couple who were walking their dog on October 24, 2013.

Marjorie Ann Reitzell, 55, was convicted of second degree murder.

The bodies of the victims, Balbir Singh, 50, and and Kamal Singh, 45, were found strewn across the street.

Reitzell claimed that she swerved off the road in order to avoid hitting the Singhs’ dog, who survived the accident.

Reitzell’s car went over the center divider after hitting the couple, ran head on into another car, injuring the occupants and ran into a tree.

Reitzell had a prior conviction for a DUI in 2012.

Reitzell was also found guilty of two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, causing injury while driving under the influence, and several prior convictions. Her blood alcohol level was .23, over an hour after the accident and probably .26 or .27 at the time of the accident.

Reitzell required a neck brace and received stitches on her lip because of the crash.

The defense attorney, Richard Keyes, said that his client did not show malice or forethought and that she felt remorse for her actions.

Reitzell received a life sentence.

I’d never been in a car accident in my whole life.I had originally hired an attorney, and he had dropped my case. So I came to the Accident Attorneys and they took on my case. They were amazing. They did a really good job. And I didn’t have to handle anything. In the end I’m very satisfied with my settlement.

We found Accident Attorneys, and finding them was probably the best thing that happened to us right then, because we were very well taken care of. They came out to us. We didn’t have to go to them. We was very well compensated financially. If I had to recommend an attorney, I would recommend them.
