Jason Cozmanoff guilty in 2012 hit-and-run death of Lake Co. jail guard Britney Meux

December 12, 2013 (LAKE COUNTY, Ind.)

A jury deliberated four hours Wednesday before finding Cozmanoff, of Lakes of the Four Seasons, guilty of 13 counts in the March 2012 death of 25-year-old Britney Meux. The trial lasted eight days.

Cozmanoff was convicted of reckless homicide, three counts of criminal recklessness, eight counts related to failing to stop after an accident and reckless driving. He will be sentenced on Feb. 7.

A trial in June ended in a mistrial when a jury pool member said he had witnessed the accident.
