The Fort Lewis man charged with vehicular homicide in the deaths of two women last November has turned himself in after failing to show up for a court appearance last week.
Kenneth A. Foell, 25, was driving a car that crashed down a ravine in Bremerton’s Navy Yard City neighborhood on Nov. 8, 2009. Two passengers in Foell’s car, 28-year-old Laresa Davis, and 27-year-old Nina Morrison-Martinez, died in the crash. Foell didn’t show up for a court hearing on Nov. 1, so Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Anna Laurie issued a $100,000 warrant for his arrest. He surrendered Saturday night at the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
Kitsap County prosecutors charged Foell with two counts of vehicular homicide in May, after a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office investigation found his blood-alcohol level was .06 and he was speeding when the crash occurred.
On Nov. 1, prosecutors and Foell’s attorney were close to an agreement in the case. In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors had agreed to recommend a 20-month prison sentence. But Foell didn’t show up for the court appearance.
Prosecutors will seek a more serious sentence under state vehicular homicide law and also will charge Foell with failing to appear for a court hearing.
