CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire grand jury has indicted a former Fortune 500 executive on murder charges in a crash that killed a Vermont man and his pregnant wife.

Robert Dellinger told investigators he was trying to kill himself when he steered his pickup across an Interstate 89 median in December. His truck went airborne and took off the top of an SUV. Jason Timmons and Amanda Murphy, who was eight-months pregnant, were killed.

The Tuesday indictment charges Dellinger with two counts of second-degree murder in the couple's deaths and second-degree assault in the death of the fetus.

Dellinger is a former executive at PPG Industries. He also worked for Sprint, Delphi and General Electric.
