Lincoln Woman Accused Of Intentionally Running Over 2 Men Gets New Charges

Loading

      New, more serious, charges have been filed against a Lincoln woman accused of intentionally running over and killing 2 maintenance workers at her apartment complex.

Bail for 27-year old Taylor Bradley has also been increased to $2-million dollars.

    Bradley was originally charged with 2 counts of 2nd-degree murder, but now faces 2 counts of 1st-degree murder, 1 count of attempted 1st-degree murder for trying to hit a third person, and 3 counts of felony use of a deadly weapon.

     The two men killed have been identified as 45-year old Ronald GOnzalez and 42-year old Chris Karmazin. The name of the third target has not been released.

     Bradley made a memorable appearance in court via video conference from jail yesterday, shouting expletives at the jail while denying the charges.

     Court documents show that officers responding to a call of 2 men having been run over took Bradley into custody after finding her driving a car with heavy damage. 

     She later told investigators she hit Karmazin and Gonzales “seconds apart,” with her description of both men matching the bodies officers found at the scene. 

     In the arrest affidavit, officers say they concluded Bradley intended to hit the men because they were working in a grassy area 20-to-30 yards from any road or driveway designed for driving. 

     At a Monday news conference, Lincoln Police Chief Teresa Ewins called the situation “more complex than one would think,” adding that police had video that didn’t show everything prior to the men being hit and that more video was being sought.

      Neighbors and the apartment complex manager say Bradley had lived there about a year and no one had any complaints about her.
