Man Appears in Court After Fatal Accident

Parents of a Somerset girl killed in a car accident last week looked on as the man charged with her murder made another court appearance.

Ryan West is charged with murder and assault from the accident.

Police say he was drunk when he crashed on Bourbon Road.

Brittany Shoap was killed and two others were seriously injured.

A Sheriff's Deputy testified that West admitted he had been drinking.

The Deputy also told West's attorney that they won't have definitive alcohol levels on West until lab tests are complete.
