GREENE, Ohio (WJW) – A woman whose car crashed into a man’s bedroom, killing him in February, had a blood alcohol level of more than four times the legal limit, according to a press release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
On Wednesday, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office received toxicology results from a testing lab that says Hallie Matzko’s alcohol level was 0.374 grams by weight of alcohol per hundred milliliters of urine, according to a press release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
This is more than four times the legal limit of 0.08.
Matsko, a 32-year-old citizen of Green, was charged with drunk driving on February 19. The sheriff’s office said she was later re-arrested and charged with aggravated murder.
The incident took place around 2:30 am on February 19, when Matsko is suspected of losing control of her car and driving into the home of 69-year-old Robert D. Shull Jr., who was sleeping.
Authorities arrived at his home in the 2500 block of Barth Road and found him pinned under a car and he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
In this case, the charge of aggravated murder is a crime of the second degree.
