A nationwide warrant has been issued for the arrest of 34-year-old Jeremy Albrecht of Findlay. He failed to appear for a pre-trial hearing on Monday morning.
Albrecht is facing two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and two counts of operating a vehicle while under the influence. The charges stem from a June 18, 2011 motorcycle accident which killed his passenger, Angela Cook, 32, of Bloomdale.
The accident occurred on Ohio 18 near Bairdstown when he missed a sharp turn in the road. Cook was pronounced dead at the scene.
Albrecht's attorney, Skip Potter, did not stay in the courtroom of Judge Reeve Kelsey for the case to go on the record. Such actions generally indicate he was not expecting his client to arrive.
Kelsey granted the issuance of the warrant and placed the case in the inactive pile pending the capture or appearance of Albrecht. The case was set for a March 19-22 trial.
