Toth's brother-in-law, Ricky Brooks, was also injured in the same explosion. Brooks suffered second and third degree burns to his face and hands.
Brooks’ wife, Mindy, says the two bonded while fighting in Iraq. Mindy says she heard about Toth's death around 10 p.m. Wednesday night, but it was hours later before she knew what had happened to her husband.
"I knew Ricky was probably in there, because they always rode together. And it was just unreal. You wouldn't believe what runs through your head."
Ricky Brooks is a Kentucky State Police trooper serving in Metcalfe and Monroe counties. He will be taken to a burn center in Texas next week for treatment of his injuries.
