Nee saw the accident in his rear view mirror and returned to the scene where he was later charged with murder in the officers death, intoxication manslaughter in both deaths and six counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle because the boy’s family was left in critical condition.
Ned’s bond was set at 1.3 million and he is currently in jail.
