Tyler Jenkins and Katie Peller have been arrested for a series of unfortunate events that lead to Sgt. Karl Strohsal being killed. Tyler will be facing manslaughter charges and Katie will be charged as an accessory after the fact.
Over six months an investigation has shown that a chair that was placed intentionally in the road by the pair and that was what caused the incident. Sgt Karl had run into a guardrail avoiding the chair. Upon exiting his car on the shoulder, a drunk driver killed him.
Tyler has already turned himself over to the St. Petersburg police. A third person was involved but as he is under the age of 17 he has not been named. The 17-year-old will also be facing the lesser charge of accessory after the fact.
