A decision was made in a Harrison County courtroom Wednesday that will allow William Barney Lee’s criminal case to soon be heard by a grand jury.
Lee is accused of felony leaving the scene of an accident causing death. The defendant reportedly drove a car that crashed on I-110 in a three-vehicle accident resulting in the death of Maggie Fletcher on April 27th. Lee attempted to leave the scene of the accident but was later captured by a citizen and held at bay until police arrived.
Lee remains in jail on a one-million-dollar bond.
Fletcher was from Long Beach.
