Drunk Driver Convicted of Murder in Death of Adenhart

A jury in Santa Ana, California has convicted Andrew Gallo of DUI murder in the deaths of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Nick Adenhart, his girlfriend Courtney Stewart and friend Henry Pearson.

Adenhart and his companions were killed early on the morning of April 9, 2009 just hours after he had pitched six scoreless innings against the Oakland Athletics. John Wilhite, the lone survivor of the accident, had to have his spine surgically re-attached to his skull.

Gallo, who has a previous DUI conviction, was also convicted for drunken driving, hit-and-run driving, and driving under the influence of alcohol and causing great bodily injury. He could face life in prison. Gallo is scheduled to be sentenced on December 10th.

We can only hope that Gallo's prison cell does not have a key.
