New Trial for Man Accused of Killing Corrections Officer

Share this post

A new trial date will be set Monday in the case of a man accused in an alleged hit-and-run crash that killed Lake County Corrections Officer Brittney Meux and injured three others after the judge today excused the jury. The judge made the decision after a man apart of the jury pool stated he witnessed the incident take place along West 93rd Avenue in Crown Point in March of last year. 43-year-old Jason Cozmanoff, of Lakes of the Four Seasons, faces charges that include reckless homicide and criminal recklessness. Earlier this month a Lake County judge approved a request from the defense to remove a memorial for Meux [mew] at the Lake County Government Center and Court complex before and during the length of the trial.
