A man who intentionally drove his vehicle into a group of cyclists in Waller County four years has gotten a life sentence in prison.
That incident happened in March 2017, when 24 year old Victor Kevin Tome, an Army veteran, drove his vehicle into a group of racing bicyclists on Bueller Road, near Monaville.
Court records say he purposefully drove into the five cyclists, who were training for the MS 150, killing two, Craig Tippitt and Kerri Guillory.
From there, investigators say Tome left the scene, and hid in a house until his arrest that day. Tome pled not guilty by reason of insanity, but a military psychologist determined Tome suffered psychosis due to extensive abuse of ecstasy, marijuana, and alcohol.
The 24 year old Tome was convicted earlier this month on one count of Capital Murder, two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, two counts of Accident Involving Death, and one county of Accident Involving Serious Bodily Injury.
The Capital Murder charge landed Tome a life without parole sentence.
