CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Franklin County jury Friday found William E. Foster, no age available, of 1004 Fox Meadow Road, Chambersburg, guilty of two counts of homicide by vehicle in the March 1995 deaths of his mother and stepfather.
Both died when Foster ignored warning gates and drove onto railroad tracks and into the path of an oncoming train, according to court records.
Foster's mother, Cora Lee Wheeler, 63, of 918 Byers Ave., Chambersburg, and her husband, Jerry Wheeler, 42, of the same address, were killed, court records said. Cora Wheeler was pronounced dead at the scene. Jerry Wheeler was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the hospital.
