A Kingston woman has been indicted on two counts of criminally negligent homicide in a November 2009 traffic accident.

Two people riding on a motorcycle were killed in the accident.

Aileen Kennedy was driving a 1997 Ford Ranger on Hwy. 58 when she attempted a turn into the Riverbend Market.

She turned right into the path of the Honda Goldwing motorcycle that carried Keith B. Abblett and Nadia Abblett, both of Knoxville.

Assistant district attorney Bill Reedy said the grand jury considered two forms, the more serious felony of reckless homicide and the alternative of felony, criminally negligent homicide.

“One to two years is the sentence range,” he said.
