Ex-NBA Mookie Blaylock Could Face Vehicular Homicide Charges
Blaylock’s condition has improved from being on life support to being expected to survive after a horrific car crash in Atlanta.
Once Blaylock improves enough to speak to police, he could be facing serious charges.
Blaylock could face vehicular homicide charges in the death of Monica Murphy. The accident happened Friday afternoon on Tara Boulevard, a busy four-lane highway 17 miles south of Atlanta in Clayton County.
Jonesboro police chief Franklin Allen told USA TODAY Sports there will be a discussion next week with the district attorney over charges for Blaylock, 46, who apparently lost control of his Cadillac Escalade, crossed the center median and collided head-on with the vehicle driven by Murphy’s husband, Frankie, who broke an ankle. Allen said he believed Monica Murphy died from internal bleeding.
Blaylock also has an outstanding arrest warrant out because of a failed court appearance for DUI. Alcohol doesn’t seem to be involved in the crash, Blaylock had been under doctor’s care for seizures.
