HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WNCN) – An Orange County judge has denied a motion that would suppress the phones records of a former UNC student charged in a 2015 triple-fatal wreck on Interstate 85.
A prosecutor told CBS North Carolina the judge denied the motion to suppress cell phone record evidence in the Chandler Kania case.
Chandler Kania crashed his Jeep Wrangler head-on into a Suzuki sedan driven by Felecia Harris, 49, of Charlotte, officials said.
Two of the three passengers in Harris’ car were also killed, including 6-year-old Jahnice Beard of Brooklyn, New York, who was seated in the backseat, and Darlene McGee, 46, of Charlotte.
Kania’s lawyers filed a motion to have certain evidence suppressed:
Photos and videos from Kania’s cell phone
Kania’s attorney argued cell phone records should be thrown out because the search warrant for the phone was improperly served.
A judge heard arguments from both sides during a hearing in mid-August.
No word on the status of the other evidence mentioned in the motion.
However, a state trooper said there was evidence on Kania’s phone that a crime took place and claimed Kania’s friends had his phone that night.
