Mom, son not guilty in deadly crash

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) - The trial of two people charged with giving alcohol to minors who were later killed in a wrong-way car crash ended with the mother and son being found not guilty.

Debby and Joshua Franco were charged with furnishing alcohol to three teenagers who were killed in a Jan. 31 crash on Route 50 in Crofton.
The Francos are the mother and brother, respectively, of 18-year-old Breanna Franco.
She was killed, along with 19-year-old Brittany Walker and 18-year-old Zachary Rose, when the car Walker was driving the wrong way on Route 50 crashed into another vehicle.
That driver, 55-year-old Terry Wayne Davis, was also killed. Maryland State Police said both drivers were under the influence of alcohol.
The Francos' lawyer has said his clients are innocent.
