Man killed after being shot in the head in Bridgeport

Man killed after being shot in the head in Bridgeport BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) - A 21-year-old man was shot in the head in Bridgeport while sitting in a vehicle Sunday night. 

On Monday, more than three years after a mom and her 8-year-old daughter were killed in a head-on collision on U.S. 27, a judge rejected a plea deal for the driver of the car that hit them.

The Crestview resident entered an Alford plea to two charges of reckless homicide in the death of Desirae Hensley and her eight-year-old daughter Jakyra Cundiff in a March 3, 2016, head-on collision in which Feinauer crossed the center line on U.S. 27 in Cold Spring.

Campbell County Circuit Court Judge Dan Zalla told Tammy Feinauer, who faces two counts of negligent reckless homicide, if she persists with a guilty plea, the sentence would be less lenient than the terms of the deal. He asked if she wanted to change her plea, and after a short recess, she withdrew it.

School bus driver dead, eight children injured in Mississippi rollover

Feinauer was indicted seven months after the crash on Nov. 17, 2016. The case started to come to a final resolution July 31 when the 41-year-old submitted an Alford plea. An Alford plea is not an admission of guilt but is admitting prosecutors had enough evidence to convict on two counts of reckless homicide.

Desirae Hensley and her daughter, Jakyra Cundiff, were killed in the head-on collision March 3, 2016, on U.S. 27 in Cold Spring.

Hensley was taking her 8-year-old daughter to Tristate Urgent Care when Feinauer crossed the center line on U.S. 27.

Reckless homicide is a felony punishable by between one and five years for each charge. Feinauer's maximum jail sentence will be 10 years.
