The Crash that left a Richmond Rescue worker and father of 3 little girls dead, has also lead to 2nd Degree murder charges against a 23 year old barre women.

Following the investigation of a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred on July 30, 2015 on I-89 in Richmond, the Vermont State Police are charging Karri Benoir, 23, of Barre VT, with Murder in the 2nd Degree.

Information developed following the incident revealed that Benoir intentionally crossed the center median in an attempt to take her own life by striking another vehicle. The charge is supported by sufficient evidence to suggest that in causing the death of the victim, the defendant acted with a "wanton disregard of the likelihood that death or great bodily harm would result." Benoir is currently hospitalized at the UVM Medical Center. Her arraignment is scheduled for tomorrow, August 6th at Chittenden Superior Court in Burlington. If Benoir has not been released from the hospital, her arraignment will occur there.
