Mixed verdict for ex-cop in crash that killed 2 in Pa.



Published: Tue, December 11, 2012 @ 9:40 p.m.

EASTON, Pa. (AP) — A retired police officer has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of two motorcyclists he struck last year as they rode to a viewing for a fellow club member.

A Northampton County jury cleared John Heaney III of the most serious counts, finding him not guilty today of charges including vehicular homicide.

Prosecutors alleged Heaney had up to six drinks before the July 2011 crash that killed Keith Michaelson and Michael Zadoyko and injured four others in Bangor.

Heaney claimed he passed out from low blood sugar resulting from gastric bypass surgery. He refused a blood draw after the crash.

Michaelson, of West Milford, N.J., and Zadoyko, of Pompton Lakes, N.J., belonged to a club for riders recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.

Sentencing is set for January.
