Robert Gentil was indicted last year on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in connection with a crash that claimed the life of a well known historian.
In Richmond Circuit Court yesterday (1/19), Judge Joi Jeter-Taylor accepted an insanity plea and ordered that he spend at least 45 days being evaluated at Central State Hospital.
In April, Gentil’s SUV slammed into Elizabeth Pryor’s Audi on Grove Avenue near Mary Mumford School. She died at the scene. Investigators believe he was traveling at least 100 miles an hour at the time of the crash.
