Court: Fatal Boat Collision Trial Set For August

April 3, 2018

[Written by Don Burgess]

A Southampton man charged with the powerboat death of New Zealand visitor Mary McKee had his trial date set for August 13.

In December of last year, Andrew Lake pled not guilty to unlawfully killing Mrs McKee, 62, on June 1, 2017, who was in Bermuda to attend the America’s Cup.

At that time he also pled not guilty with causing bodily harm to Arthur McKee, Mrs McKee’s husband, via driving a power craft in a manner deemed dangerous to other users and causing grievous bodily harm to British tourist Charlie Watson.

While investigating the crash police said a 17 foot collided with the 9 foot Zodiac inflatable which was carrying Mrs McKee and two others.

The trial was set for this month, but because not all the witnesses could attend as they are overseas, the trial date was pushed back.
