BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Jury selection started today in the trial of a man accused of killing a mother of three in 2010.
Daniel Brennick is charged with second degree murder after a car accident in Brunswick County. Satu Harris died at the scene of the accident on River Road near Southport.
Brennick was 22 at the time of the accident. He accused of drunk driving and killing Harris.
It was almost midnight in May 2010 when Harris was driving south on River Road near the intersection of NC 87 north of Southport. Highway Patrol says Brennick’s truck crossed the center line and hit Harris. Troopers say Harris was trapped in her car and died at the scene.
Brennick was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center and later had his leg amputated.
Harris left behind a daughter named and two sons. Her family did not want to talk on camera Tuesday, but they have posted their concerns about the impending trial on a memorial page on Facebook. Harris’s sister and daughter both told members of the group they would keep them updated on the trial is it moves forward. They also asked for the continual prayers and support as jury selection began and said they hope Harris finally knows justice.
The trial for Brennick’s second degree murder charge is set to begin tomorrow.
Brennick was also arrested in September for violating his probation by allegedly selling drugs.
