Article by: KBMT


ORANGE COUNTY — A man convicted of the 2014 murder of 16-year-old Lexy Bertrand has won an appeal for a retrial.

Prosecutors said Kelvin Roy caused a highway crash in which he intentionally tried to kill himself and a passenger by slamming into another vehicle. Bertrand was a passenger in that other vehicle.

The crash was on old highway 90 in Vidor.

The court could not successfully seat a jury in the case forcing the mistrial, Monday.
