BATON ROUGE - A judge found the woman accused of killing five people in a road rage wreck guilty of negligent homicide in a bench trial today in Baton Rouge.

Judge Trudy White found Kelsye Hall guilty of five counts of negligent homicide in the 2011 wreck on I-10. Because the proceedings were a bench trial, the judge rendered the verdict instead of a jury.

White denied post-conviction bail for Hall, and remanded her to the custody of the Department of Corrections until she could be sentenced.

Investigators said the wreck happened after a Hall and another driver, David Leger, chased each other along the interstate at high speeds. Leger was also charged with vehicular homicide.

On Thursday a defense expert testified Hall was not at fault in the wreck, laying the blame entirely on Leger. Investigators said Leger had a .10 blood alcohol level at the time of the wreck.

News 2's Michael Shingleton will have more details starting at noon.
