A man accused of causing a car crash that killed an 11-year-old child was indicted for vehicular homicide Monday by a Henry County grand jury.

Kevin Riley Hilt, 39, of 55 Mimosa St. in Henry was indicted on two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, vehicular assault, and DUI in a crash that killed Abigale Luceio on Nov. 17, 2018. The wreck occurred on Highway 79 southwest of Paris near Routon.

Ricky Anthony Glisson, 36, of Camden, the driver of the car in which Luceio was riding, was also indicted on two counts of child neglect, two counts of reckless endangerment, DUI (marijuana) and driving on a revoked license.

According to Hilt’s arrest warrant, Hilt was speeding and following too closely when he rear-ended the vehicle driven by Glisson. Glisson’s vehicle overturned, throwing out both Luceio and Sheynne Glisson, 13. Neither girl was wearing a seatbelt and both were trapped under the vehicle. Sheynne Glisson was airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

Neither driver was injured, according to reports at the time of the crash.

There were 61 indictments brought before the grand jury Monday, including two secret indictments, meaning that the defendants in those cases have not yet been arrested.

One indictment for Damon Burner, age and address unknown, was deemed a “no true bill,” meaning that the grand jury did not find enough evidence for an indictment. Burner had been accused of violation of the sexual offender registry.

All defendants indicted during Monday’s court session are scheduled to appear Tuesday for arraignment in Henry County Circuit Court.
