MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Bunker Hill, W.Va., man indicted last fall in the March 2008 death of a 27-year-old woman in an alcohol-related accident is scheduled to be tried next month in circuit court after rejecting a plea offer from the Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney's office.
In a brief pretrial hearing Monday, Ricky Luther Corbin, 25, indicated he was told of the plea offer by his attorney, but that wanted to go to trial, which is scheduled to begin July 28.
Police said Corbin on March 9, 2008, wrecked a red Dodge Durango carrying four passengers in the 1500 block of Hatchery Road.
One of the passengers, Dawnelle Renee Hutzler of Inwood, W.Va., was found dead at the accident scene. A 17-year-old male also was in the vehicle.
