Second trial begins for Beaumont man who killed Vidor teen in car crash
UPDATED (12/5/18) Kelvin Roy has been found GUILTY of murder by a unanimous decision.
A new trial begins in orange county for a Beaumont man convicted of murdering a 16-year-old girl in a car crash on Main St. in Vidor.
In February of 2014, Kelvin Roy, 36, was convicted of killing Alexandria Bertrand.
Bertrand was in a van when Roy's vehicle launched over railroad tracks and crashed into the Van.
Police say the force ejected Bertrand from vehicle and killed her.
Tuesday witnesses testified, Roy's ex-girlfriend in the car at the time of the crash says Roy was under the influence of PCP.
Roy was sentenced to 75-years in prison, but his conviction was overturned when the judge instructed a jury to consider Intoxication Manslaughter.
The defense is arguing Roy did not intend to kill Bertrand.
If convicted Roy faces up to life in prison.
