FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's NewsCenter) --- A Monroeville man accused of driving drunk and killing a woman near Woodburn last week told police afterwards that he had no recollection of the deadly collision.
That information came to light on the day of Brian Mansfield’s first felony court appearance.
It was contained in a more detailed probable cause court document now in the record.
New charges have been filed and a much higher bond amount has been set against the defendant with a significant history of driving while intoxicated.
In the court records, police make note that at the hospital following the crash, when Mansfield was read the charges he faced, he responded, "No way, I killed someone?"
His blood alcohol level tested nearly five times the legal limit, after police say he blew a stop sign at the intersection of State Roads 14 and 101 and rammed into an SUV, killing 45-year old Jacqueline Yenser of Antwerp Ohio.
The woman's daughter was also hurt.
Originally, Mansfield faced two felony counts, but now there are five felony charges, including OWI with a blood alcohol level exceeding .15 causing death, plus aggravated battery.
His bond has been increased as well, boosted from $25,000 to $160,000.
He'll likely have his trial date established at his next hearing set for December 17th.
