Prosecutors Focus on Vehicular Homicide Cases

By Associated Press | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Prosecutors from Kentucky and Tennessee are attending a training event focused on prosecution of vehicular homicide cases.

The training started Tuesday and continues until Thursday in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's office says the training is designed to create a team-building approach between crash reconstruction officers and prosecutors.

Conway says the training will create a better understanding of each other's roles.

Commonwealth's attorneys from Kentucky are joining prosecutors from the Tennessee district attorney's office at the training.

The attorney general's office says Kentucky had a drop in highway fatalities in 2013. It says one in five highway fatalities are in crashes involving alcohol.

The training is funded in part through the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety with grant funds provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
