A jury in northwest Iowa Thursday found a man guilty of supplying alcohol to a teenager who was killed in a traffic accident. Twenty-six-year-old Robin Armfield of Hornick was originally charged with supplying alcohol to minor resulting in death, a class D felony.
A Woodbury County jury instead found him guilty of a lesser charge – the serious misdemeanor offense of supplying alcohol to a minor. A sentencing date has not been set, but Armfield faces up to one year in jail.
He was charged in connection with a February 21 crash that killed 17-year-old Mary Katherine Hughes of Salix. Authorities said Hughes drove her car south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 29 and collided head-on with a truck. The driver of the pickup, 23-year-old Ryan Marx of Sioux City, was not seriously injured.
