A Jackson County man is facing murder and other charges in Laurel County in connection with a June traffic crash.
Justin Wibbels, 21, of McKee, turned himself in after being indicted by a Laurel County grand jury, the Laurel County Sheriff's Department said.
Wibbels, who was taken to the Laurel County jail, is charged with murder, first-degree wanton endangerment and reckless driving, according to the sheriff's department.
The case stems from a June 16 wreck on Ky. 30 in Laurel County that resulted in the death of Jerry Thompson. According to the sheriff's department, Wibbels' car allegedly struck Thompson's vehicle head on.
