Judge won’t exclude evidence in Maine manslaughter case

Authorities allege that 20-year-old Kristina Lowe was drunk and texting at the time of a crash that killed two friends.

The Associated Press

PARIS — A judge has denied several motions to exclude evidence from the trial of a woman charged with manslaughter for allegedly causing the death of two friends in a West Paris car crash.

Kristina Lowe has pleaded not guilty to two counts of manslaughter, two counts of aggravated criminal operating under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident in connection with the January 2012 crash that took the lives of 19-year-old Logan Dam and 16-year-old Rebecca Mason.

Authorities allege the 20-year-old Lowe was drunk and texting at the time.

The Sun Journal reports that a judge Thursday denied motions to exclude evidence that Lowe was distracted while driving, cellphone records, and state police accident reconstruction report.

Lowe’s lawyer says he wants the trial moved to another county.
