WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The district attorney says the suspect in a fatal crash last week did not make it to his first appearance.
District Attorney Ben David said Richard Constantineau was supposed to go to court today, but he is still recovering from the accident.
He is charged in a crash in Rocky Point that killed Ronald Larson last week. Constantineau pled guilty to a similar crash in 2013 killing a woman during a crash on NC 211 in Brunswick County.
David said prosecutors are looking into increasing his charges in last week’s crash from felony death by motor vehicle to second degree murder.
