Grand jury charges Florida truck driver with five counts of aggravated vehicular homicide

Dayren Rocubert

A Florida truck driver who previously entered a plea to a single count of vehicular homicide for an Ohio crash that killed four members of a family with Livingston County ties, has now been indicted by a grand jury, invalidating the plea deal.

29-year-old Dayren Rocubert had pleaded no contest on January 30 in Sidney, Ohio Municipal Court to a single count of vehicular homicide. In exchange for the plea, four other counts were dismissed. A no contest plea is not a legal admission of guilt, but is treated as such at sentencing.

However, court records show that a grand jury returned an indictment on Feb. 16 for five felony counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.

The case was sent to the grand jury after a toxicology report  indicated Rocubert was under the influence of methamphetamine, cocaine and amphetamines at the time of the crash.

Rocubert was driving a tractor trailer that crossed over the median on I-75 in Shelby County, north of Dayton, on Christmas Eve. The truck struck two vehicles with family members traveling together for the holidays.

One of the vehicles the truck hit was driven by 32-year-old Lauren M. Hahn of Westland, with her mother, 63-year-old Kimberly A. Siegrist of Brighton, as a passenger. The other, driven by 32-year-old Jeremy D. R. Boehne of Farmington, had his wife, Karen M. Boehne, as a passenger. She was also the daughter of Siegrist and pregnant at the time of her death, this the fifth count of aggravated vehicular homicide.

The Boehnes married earlier in 2022 and met while at Hartland High School, where Hahn also was a graduate.
