CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE MURDER

On March 17, 1990, Kimberly Jean was walking home on County Road "O" at approximately 10:00 pm because she missed connections with her ride. She was walking in the appropriate manner, on the side of the road facing traffic and was about two miles from her home. Kim was hit by a vehicle driven by Scott Keeley who had a blood alcohol content of .165. After Kim was hit by Keeley's vehicle, her body was carried several hundred feet up a hill. Keeley pleaded no contest and was sentenced to nine months in the Jefferson County Jail-Hueber with privileges after 30 days. Keeley was later killed in a head-on collision with a snowmobile.
