NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A Norfolk man who was arrested after a 69-year-old man
was fatally struck in a parking lot has pleaded guilty.
The Office of Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney Gregory Underwood said
75-year-old Charles R. Revele Jr. accepted a plea deal Monday on charges
of aggravated involuntary
manslaughter and DUI.
Norfolk Police said the incident happened in a Food Lion parking lot on Christmas Eve in 2018.
Underwood’s office said Revele
was intoxicated and drove recklessly when he crashed into several parked
vehicles. A man named Benson Adetimehin was standing in between two of the
vehicles, and became pinned.
Adetimehin was eventually freed
and taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where he died from “multiple
blunt force injuries.”
Underwood’s office said Revele’s
blood alcohol content (BAC) was .22.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 25. Revele is facing up to six years in prison.
