Fuller gets continuance in vehicular homicide proceeding due to condition

By Walter Geiger A man charged with killing an acquaintance in a crash here on Memorial Day 2014 had his arraignment postponed to June 22 due to continuing medical problems stemming from the incident. Michael L. Fuller, 31, is charged with two counts first degree vehicular homicide, endangering a child while DUI and vehicular homicide as a habitual violator with a revoked license. Public defender Elna Reese told Judge Bill Fears she had spoken to Fuller’s mother. ’He has just been indicted. He was in a coma for a time. He may not be able to get to court. He is just out of long term care. He can’t walk. He can’t talk. He can’t eat,’ Reese said. Judge Fears requested a status update on Fuller be provided him on June 22 – the date for pre-trial hearings. Fuller was at the wheel of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee on Hwy. 36 East when he lost control near Eady Creek Road and overturned multiple times in the early hours. Fuller was injured. His passenger, 42-year-old James Adron ‘˜Pookie’ Baxter III, was partially ejected and died at the scene. Both lived on Barnesville Road in Spalding County. Baxter’s son, the only one in the Jeep wearing a seatbelt, crawled out of the vehicle, climbed to the roadway and flagged down help.
