A Calhoun County man is facing 33 years in prison for the DUI related death of a Dutch cyclist. Wendell Blount was under the influence of morphine when he struck and killed Esther Hageman. Take a further look at the article:
The vacationing journalist was hit by Blount's SUV on the Natchez Trace near Houston, Miss., on April 22, 2009.
Blount testified that he had seen a cyclist in the distance, but was checking his vehicle's mirrors when he hit Hageman from behind.
The case was in federal court because the Trace is federal property.
