A southwest Iowa man faces serious charges after a wreck that killed a couple walking along the highway near Osceola. According to a report from Iowa State Patrol, Marlan Boor of Murray was driving west on Old Highway 34, about two miles west of Osceola at about six o’clock Friday night.
A couple from Murray — 51-year-old James Cottrell and 52-year-old Julie O’Connor Cottrell — were walking along the highway. The patrol says Boor failed to negotiate a curve in the highway and hit the couple with his pick-up. Both were killed. Boor will be charged with two counts of vehicular homicide.
