Angela Gray, 40, of Muldrow has been charged in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw, this time with conspiracy, child endangerment by driving under the influence, and selling or furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor, all felonies.
This time her son and a young friend were charged with conspiracy too. Joey B. Gray, l9, of Muldrow and Kyle L. Brannon, 20, of Muldrow are both charged with one felony count of conspiracy.
The charges were all filed Aug. 31 in district court, according to court records. An initial hearing on the new set of charges is expected to be held Thursday.
According to the charges, Gray is accused of "conspiring and agreeing with Kyle Brannon and Joey Gray to commit the crime of child endangerment, or in the alternative leaving the scene of accident, by agreeing to alter the truth of the accident and create a story to exonerate Angela Gray from any criminal wrong doing or exposure by altering the scene of the accident and cleaning up the beers, removing an ice chest of beer from the ATV, moving the location of Christian Mayberry at the scene and moving the ATV from the scene prior to law enforcement's arrival to investigate the scene of the accident."
Angela and Joey Gray and Brannon are all accused of allegedly covering up the ATV crash on Sept. 1, 2013, south of Muldrow that left another young man, Christian Mayberry, with severe brain trauma. Mayberry has been undergoing rehabilitation ever since, and recently went to Texas for more rehab.
In a jury trial last month, in which Angela Gray faced a charge of failure to stop at an accident resulting in non-fatal injury, the jury deadlocked on that charge and a mistrial was declared. Jurors told District Judge Jeff Payton that, based on the testimony, they could not decide who was driving the ATV at the time of the crash. Angela Gray testified Mayberry was driving, and Mayberry testified Gray was driving.
Assistant District Attorney Michael Ashworth, who tried that case, said he would retry the case. At that same trial Angela Gray was found not guilty of contributing to the delinquency of minors.
Angela Gray also faces a civil suit, filed by the Mayberry, in district court.
