Suspect in 5 Vermont teens' wrong-way crash killings already facing domestic assault charges - stole squad car after crash
WILLISTON, Vt. - The suspect in the death of five Vermont high school juniors in a wrong-way crash on the interstate was already facing domestic assault charges when the accident occurred, according to court records.
CBS Burlington affiliate WCAX-TV reports investigators visited the home of Steven Bourgoin, 36, in Williston for at least the second time on Sunday after the deadly series of crashes on Saturday on Interstate 89 nearby.
Bourgoin was arrested in May for domestic assault and unlawful restraint after his girlfriend alleged he threatened to throw her down the stairs and kill both her and their two-year-old child, WCAX reports. He has denied the charges, but was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend and child. Bourgoin’s trial for that incident was supposed to start next month.
