Repeat DUI offender is formally charged in fatal crash

The Associated Press - January 13, 2017 9:18 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A 30-year-old Oklahoma man who has pleaded guilty to four driving under the influence of alcohol charges has been formally charged in connection with a deadly alcohol-related collision in Canadian County on New Year’s Eve.
Court records show the charges filed Wednesday against Craig Maker of Edmond include second-degree murder and DUI.
Maker remains jailed and court records don’t list a plea or an attorney to speak for him.
Maker was arrested following a two-vehicle collision on the Kilpatrick Turnpike in which 37-year-old Amanda Carson of Yukon was killed and three people in her vehicle were injured.
Online court records indicate Maker has pleaded guilty to DUI charges four times since 2011 and most recently received a 10-year deferred sentence when he pleaded guilty to DUI in May 2016.
