Driver going to trial in Eagle Mountain crash that killed two boys
PROVO, Utah — The man charged in a car crash that killed two boys who were playing in a horse corral will stand trial.
Kent Cody Barlow, 25, from Eagle Mountain will be tried on two second-degree felony counts of manslaughter and a misdemeanor count of possession or use of a controlled substance.
Witness said 25-year-old Kent Cody Barlow was showing off his car when he lost control and plowed into the stable on May 2.
Hunter Jackson and Odin Ratliff, both 3 years old, were best friends and they died instantly in the crash at the Cedar Valley Stables in Eagle Mountain.
Detectives said they found evidence that Barlow was impaired. He tested positive for methamphetamine during a preliminary drug screening.
Fourth District Judge Robert Lund ordered the trial during a preliminary hearing in Provo on Thursday.
If convicted, Barlow could potentially serve a maximum of up to 30 years in prison.
