A Philadelphia judge dismissed 3rd-degree murder charges against 22-year old, Jayana Webb for the deaths of two state troopers and another man on March 21st of this year. According to a report from KYW News Radio, the Philadelphia Attorney’s Office refiled the same 3rd-degree murder charges against Webb. For the time being, Webb is now facing vehicular homicide charges while driving under the influence, and related charges for the March 21st incident that killed the state troopers and another man.
According to court testimony from a reported “expert” toxicologist, Webb is alleged to have had a blood alcohol level of 0.211, reported to be twice the legal limit, and Marijuana in her system, when she drove onto the left shoulder between the central barrier and the left lanes of traffic, killing the two troopers and another man who the troopers had pulled over to help with car trouble.
The two troopers killed in the indictment were identified as 33-year old, Branden Sisca, and 29-year old, Martin Mack. The two troopers had just stopped Webb and pulled her over just 10-minutes prior to the fatal accident that took their lives.
The troopers reportedly gave Web a warning for dangerous driving when they pulled her over near Allegheny Avenue on I-95. After giving Webb a warning, the troopers made a U-turn and headed Southbound down I-95 to respond to a call about a man in the left lane near Lincoln Financial Field in South Philly. At around 1 a.m. the two troopers reportedly pulled to the side of the road to help a man, who has been identified as 28-year old, Reyes Olivera, who was having car trouble. Shortly after, Webb reportedly came speeding down the highway doing around 80 m.p.h, when she drove onto the left shoulder and hit all three men, killing them.
After the 3rd degree murder charges were dropped, so did Webb’s bail. Her bail is now set at 10% of $600,000 or $60,000.
