Beaumont man found guilty for crash that killed teen

The punishment for a Beaumont man who was found guilty for the 2014 killing of a Alexandria Bertrand, 16, in Vidor will be decided tomorrow.

In February of 2014, Kelvin Roy, 36, was driving while under the influence of the drug PCP.

Roy's vehicle launched over railroad tracks near the intersection 105 and Mainstreet in Vidor.

The vehicle crashed into the back of Bertrand's van which eventually caused her death.

This is the second trial for Roy. He was sentenced to 75 years, however, a judge overturned the sentence telling jurors to consider Intoxication Manslaughter.

Thursday morning closing arguments and the punishment phase will begin.

He is facing up to life in prison.
