BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – District Attorney John David Announced Tuesday the NC Court of Appeals upheld the second degree murder conviction of Daniel Brennick.
Brennick was convicted in 2012 of second degree murder in connection to a traffic accident that took the life of 38-year-old Satu Harris.
According to the district attorney's office, Brennick left a bar May 7, 2010 and decided to drive home, despite having been offered a ride home. He reportedly ran vehicles off the road, including an ambulance, and ultimately hit Harris' car on Highway 133 near Southport.
According to the DA, Brennick had a BAC or .24 when he drove his truck head-on into Harris' car.
Harris, a mother of three, died at the scene. She worked at the Verizon Wireless Call Center in Wilmington and was a known photographer in the Cape Fear area.
The District Attorney's Office said Brennick lost a leg and suffered other injuries in the accident.
