TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - The man charged in the 2021 death of Christina Peterson was convicted Monday of aggravated vehicular homicide.

Police said a car driven by George Rogers, 43, was traveling west on Woodville at a high rate of speed just after 12:30 p.m. on May 7, 2021. Rogers swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle and lost control his vehicle, veering into a utility pole, fence, and parked vehicle on the other side of the road.

Peterson, 31, was a passenger in Rogers’ vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Rogers was taken to the hospital for his injuries.

Thomas withdrew his previous plea of not guilty Monday. He entered a plea of no contest to the offense of aggravated vehicular homicide.

He will be sentenced on August 11.
