Evidence Debated in Cozmanoff Trial for Meux’s Death
December 10, 2013 — The trial of a Lakes of the Four Seasons man accused of the hit-and-run death of a Lake County correctional officer moved forward today with evidence from the scene of the crime.
Prosecutors questioned a trace evidence analyst with the Indiana State Police lab during the trial of Jason Cozmanoff.
The analyst answered questions about glass fragments and fibers recovered from a vehicle that plowed into four individuals jogging east along 93rd Avenue in Crown Point in March 2012.
The prosecution says that impact killed 25-year-old Britney Meux and injured fellow officers Latasha Johnson, David Murchek and Delano Scaife.
Cozmanoff is charged with several felonies in the crash along with fleeing the scene.
Several pieces of shattered glass and mirror fragments from Jason Cozmanoff’s blue GMC Yukon were discussed in court along with articles of clothing worn by individuals during the crash.
Scaife also displayed his left arm which he says sustained a torn bicep, tricep and nerve damage from the impact.
