Construction trailer owner pleads guilty in fatal construction accident

A construction trailer owner in Ohio pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder and a felony count of attempted second-degreasing of a human being after the accident.

The Associated Press reported that Christopher J. Daley, 38, pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges that include two counts each of second degree murder and two counts attempted second degree killing in the death of his wife, Karen Daley.

The indictment says that on Aug. 11, 2015, a construction company truck driver went through the trailer belonging to Daley’s father, Robert Daley Jr., when he drove the trailer into a flatiron and caused the flatiron to explode.

The company was paid $12,000 by the Daleys, according to court documents.
