MILAM COUNTY (March 25, 2013)--A Rockdale man has been indicted on an additional charge in the death of an unborn child in an accident in which a pregnant woman was struck by a pickup truck.
Mark Allen Talley, 56, was originally indicted on charges of intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault.
The new indictment charges manslaughter.
The charges stem from an auto-pedestrian accident in October 2012 in which a woman who was walking along Mill Street with her two twin infants in a stroller after the Rockdale Fair was struck by a pickup truck.
The woman was injured, but the two twins were not.
At the time Talley was arrested for intoxication assault but when police learned the woman was pregnant and that she lost her baby as a result of the accident, the charge against Talley was upgraded to intoxication manslaughter.
The Milam County grand jury also handed up an indictment charging aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against Marvin Charles Williams, 44, of Cameron.
He was arrested in December after a theft suspect armed with a box cutter struggled with a Cameron police officer.
The officer, Ana Lumbreras, responded to a report of a theft in progress at Mike's Convenience Store at 1003 North 4th St. where a man armed with a box cutter had threatened the clerk.
When she arrived at the store, she attempted to arrest the man, who ran, police said.
She gave chase and used her Taser in an attempt to subdue the man without success, police said.
Then the man tried to take her Taser away from her.
A second officer, Shelia Sager, arrived and joined the struggle.
She also used her Taser in an attempt to subdue the man who was finally taken into custody with the help of a Milam County sheriff's deputy.
Lumbreras received minor injuries in the scuffle, but did not require medical attention.
