SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Texas man charged in a car crash that killed Savannah jazz musician Ben Tucker nearly two years ago is scheduled to appear in court.
WTOC-TV reports an arraignment was scheduled Monday for Robert William Martin of Spicewood, Texas. He is charged with vehicular homicide in the June 2013 death of Ben Tucker, an 82-year-old upright bass player who performed with stars from Quincy Jones to Peggy Lee.
Police say Tucker was crossing a road in a golf cart when a car driven by Martin slammed into him at high speed.
Prosecutors say the case was delayed because it required analysis from the Georgia State Patrol's Specialized Crash Reconstruction Team.
