Gosserand attorney wants blood sample split
POINTE COUPEE PARISH - An emotional Victoria Gosserand was in court for a motions hearing today, along with more than a dozen family members of the woman she's accused of killing in a drunken crash last December.
Gosserand's attorney filed a motion asking that a blood sample taken from his client after the crash be split, so that it can be tested by experts hired by the defense.
Prosecutors objected to the motion, and the judge deferred a decision until the next scheduled hearing at Nov. 29 at 10 a.m.
Gosserand is accused of vehicular homicide in the death of 23-year-old Terri Parker, as well as the negligent injuring of 23-year-old Kyle Reviere in a wreck the night before Christmas Eve.
Investigators said Gosserand's blood alcohol level at the time of the wreck was nearly four times the legal limit.
