Question: Is Helm Guilty In Schrock Deaths?

Item: Jury begins deliberations in Helm trial/Thomas Clouse, Spokesman-Review

More Info: The parents and most of the Mennonite community near Chewelah have forgiven Clifford Helm for the November 2005 crash that killed five brothers and sisters. Now it’s up to nine women and three men to forgive Helm, too, or send him to prison for a crash that attorneys on both sides described as a nightmare. The jury started just after 2 p.m. today deliberating the case in which the 58-year-old Deer Park man faces five counts of vehicular homicide for the deaths of the five children and one count of vehicular assault against their father, Jeffrey Schrock.

Rebecca Mack: Helm, Fred Russell kindred spirits
