Killed in the crash were Edward Corr, Joan Corr, Michael Ferrazzi, Albert Mazza, Desma Oakes, Daniel Pereira and Aaron Perry.

Another motorcyclist, Joshua Morin, was seriously injured. The charge of reckless conduct alleges he placed another 14 people in danger of serious bodily injury, according to the indictments.

N.H. State Police said they responded to the report of the accident in Coos County just east of Valley Road around 6:30 p.m. Sunday June 21st. 

According to police, a 2016 Dodge 2500 was traveling west on Route 2 when it collided with a group of motorcycles traveling east.

Each count of Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

There was no jury selection in the court case of New Hampshire v. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy.

The court is waiting for the attorneys for the defendant and the state to file a new proposed trial schedule.  

That deadline has been extended to Nov. 15th.
