Crash survivor testifies in DUI murder case

Posted: Thursday, November 11, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A trial is continuing for a woman charged with driving under the influence and second-degree murder.

Lori Phillips is accused of being intoxicated last November when she got behind the wheel of her full-sized sport utility vehicle. Shortly after, her vehicle collided head-on into a small sedan while she was driving on the wrong side of the Seward Highway.

Twenty-three-year-old Louis Clement was killed. His fiancee, Joyua Stovall, was seriously injured. Stovall, who was in a coma for three months and has had 14 surgeries, testified Wednesday in Superior Court from her wheelchair.

Prosecutors say Phillips' blood-alcohol content was more than four times the legal limit. A blood alcohol expert testified that Phillips would have had to consume more than a dozen drinks.

The trial resumes Monday.
