City to Pursue Vehicular Manslaughter Charges Against Driver who Killed Chuck Gilbreth

Last June we learned that the SDPD investigators had recommended criminal charges against the driver responsible for the death of Chuck Gilbreth.

The City is now pursuing vehicular manslaughter charges against Francis Henry Zegler, the driver who killed Gilbreth. A jury trial is scheduled for February 25th.

Below is a copy of the letter from the City Attorney’s Office to us, along with the summary of charges.

We don’t have any more information but will keep you updated as we learn more.
