The trial of a Guymon man for negligent homicide that was supposed to have finished this week is now being postponed. According to a story in the Guymon Daily Herald,
Armando Guerrero-Uranga, 45, of Guymon allegedly killed two people in a car accident after running a stop sign back in August 2008. He is being charged with two counts of negligent homicide by a motor vehicle, which is a misdemeanor.
If convicted, Uranga could go to prison for up to two years, which is the maximum allowed for negligent homicide crime under Oklahoma law. This crime is punishable by a fine of not less than $100 to not more than $1000, or imprisonment for up to one year, or both.
The accident took place on a Sunday afternoon at Road O and Mile 32 when a Freightliner semi driven by Uranga was northbound on Mile 32 and allegedly failed to stop at the stop sign at Road O. The semi collided with a 2001 Ford Expedition and four people were critically injured. John Blagg, 18. and Xander Glover, 2, both of Guymon were killed.
Officials say that the trial was postponed because a juror fell ill. The trial will be delayed until sometime next year when the official documents can be signed.
