No Verdict Yet in Prince George's Co. Officer's Death

A jury will continue deliberations Thursday in the trial of a man involved in a high speed crash that killed a Prince George's County Police officer last year.

Kevon Darnell Neal, 23, was charged with vehicular manslaughter and fleeing and eluding following the death of officer Adrian Morris, 23.

Morris and his partner were pursuing a stolen silver Acura when their cruiser ran off Interstate 95 near the Powder Mill Road exit in August 2012. Morris died after being ejected from the vehicle. Police said he was not wearing a seatbelt.

Both Neal and his passenger, Kenneth Clark Mitchell, 25, were arrested within two days of the crash.

Mitchell, of Northeast D.C., pleaded guilty to unauthorized use of a motor vehicle last October and was sentenced to time served.

If convicted, Neal, of Fort Washington, Md., could get up to 35 years in prison.
