Jury finds Christopher Kelso guilty of aggravated vehicular homicide

YOUNGSTOWN — A six man, six-woman jury today convicted a Youngstown man of aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated vehicular assault in a Feb. 3, 2010, crash on Wilson Avenue near Prospect Street.

The jury convicted Christopher Kelso, 32, of East Midlothian Boulevard late this afternoon after three hours of deliberations.

Kelso faces up to 13 years in prison after being convicted of aggravated vehicular homicide in the death of his front seat passenger, Pamela Kennedy, 28, of Boardman, and of aggravated vehicular assault in connection with nonfatal injuries suffered by back-seat passenger, Javier Colon, 31, of Youngstown.

The trial, which began last Tuesday, was before Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court. The judge will sentence Kelso at a later date. Kelso remains free pending sentencing.
