A Georgia appeals court has granted a retrial in the case of a woman convicted of vehicular homicide in Baldwin County.
According to court documents, in July 2009, Tammi Lynn McMullen ran into a stationary vehicle on Highway 441 in north Baldwin County. Two men, Albert Lee Harris and Buford Prosser, were outside of their truck trying to reattach a trailer hauling pinestraw.
Both men were killed in the accident.
Months later, tests revealed McMullen had significant amounts of methamphetamine, morphine and phentermine, a prescription diet drug, in her blood.
McMullen was then arrested and, in February 2011, convicted of two counts of vehicular homicide and sentenced to 25 years--15 in prison and 10 on probation.
