FALMOUTH, KY (FOX19) - A Pendleton County grand jury has indicted a truck driver accused of causing a crash that killed commonwealth attorney Doug Wright.

Daniel Gabbard, 40, was indicted on all three counts he faced - wanton murder, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and operating a commercial vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substance.

He is accused of causing a crash in Pendleton County earlier this month that killed Wright, 48.

Gabbard's next court date has not been set.

Gabbard pleaded not guilty on Tuesday. His attorney, Eric Deters, says if the case goes to trial, he will seek a change of venue.
