Man Convicted in Traffic Deaths of Topeka Father, Daughter

KSAL StaffMarch 14, 2016

A north-central Kansas man will be sentenced April 29 for the deaths of a Topeka father and daughter in a traffic collision.

An Ottawa County jury convicted Jason Jeardoe of Bennington on Friday of two felony counts of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol in the 2014 deaths of Jason and Emma Jo Pisocki.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Jeardoe will be held in jail until his sentencing.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the collision occurred April 11, 2014, on Kansas 18 about three miles west of Bennington. A parked vehicle was partially in the westbound lane and Jeardoe, who was driving west, moved his pickup truck into the eastbound lane to avoid it, colliding head-on with the Pisockis vehicle. They died at the scene.
