“A Franklin man charged Friday in the hit-and-run deaths of a West Allis couple on Christmas Day was so drunk that he could barely walk when he left a nearby bar before the accident, according to a criminal complaint.Eddie Lynn Keck, 49, was charged with two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and two counts of hit-and-run causing death in the incident that killed Gary Kitchen, 53, and his wife, Barbara, 52. If convicted, Keck would face a maximum penalty of 130 years in prison.Keck has at least three previous convictions for operating while intoxicated, according to court records. When he was arrested the day after the accident, he told police he thought he hit a mailbox, the complaint says. The Kitchens were fatally injured about 6 p.m. Tuesday on their way to a family gathering on S. 35th St. Both died of blunt force trauma, according to the complaint and the medical examiner's office.”
Keck was so drunk, he could barely walk or talk when he left the Buckhorn Tavern Christmas.
Isn’t the tavern culpable for continuing to serve Keck when he was obviously impaired? One of the bartenders even admitted Keck was drunk. And you keep feeding him drinks?
Here’s the criminal complaint in the case.
