Two indicted on murder charges



All five persons had to be extricated from the mangled metal of the two cars that were almost unrecognizable. Wilson, two teenage passengers and the driver of the Honda — 59-year-old Stanley Woods of London — were flown out from the scene by medical helicopters from Air Evac and PH-1 to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington. Darlene Woods, 58, was transported from the scene to the London-Corbin Airport where she was taken to UK Medical Center in a Fixed Wing helicopter from Air Evac. The Fixed Wing model provides more stability in transport and flight than the other medical helicopters for severely injured patients.

Darlene Woods died 10 days later from injuries sustained in the crash that occurred the night before Thanksgiving.

Rain and snow during the next two weeks delayed a full-scale reconstruction of the accident site, but was done in mid-December. Deputy Larry Parrott, who investigated the accident, obtained copies of Wilson’s toxicology reports from the Emergency Room at UK Medical Center. The toxicology reports showed Wilson had numerous drugs in her system at the time of the accident. A warrant was obtained for Wilson’s arrest and she was taken into custody at her parents’ home in Laurel County on December 22. She  is held in the Laurel County Detention Center under a $500,000 cash bond.

An indictment is an accusation only and does not imply guilt or innocence.
