WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Regan Jelks, the woman accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Taemarr Walker of Warren, was arraigned Monday morning in Warren.
Jelks, 21, is accused of two counts of improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle and one count of involuntary manslaughter, which is a felony. According to counts one and two of the secret indictment, Jelks knowingly transported or had two firearms, one loaded another unloaded, in a motor vehicle on Oct. 19.
Jelks was the owner of the car on the night in question, when Warren police officer Michael Krafcik shot and killed Walker as he was responding to a one-car accident on Risher Road S.W.
As to count three of the indictment, prosecutors allege that Jelks caused the death of Walker as a proximate result of Taemarr Walker committing or attempting to commit a felony. Jelks pleaded not guilty and is being held in the Trumbull County Jail on a $250,000 cash or surety bond.
Jelks was arrested on a warrant in Detroit. She is due back in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on April 21.
