Geneva Man Faces Murder Charges

David Alton Gilley Charged

A Geneva man charged in the murder of three people made his first appearance Thursday.

David Alton Gilley appeared before Geneva District Judge Charles Fleming.

He’s in a wheelchair as the result of the injuries he received in the wreck last Saturday.

The 30-year-old Gilley was believed to be intoxicated when he was driving a van that collided with a pick-up truck. It happed on Geneva County Road 43 just outside of Samson.

Three of Gilley's passengers were pronounced dead at the scene, including his son, four-year-old David Eric Gilley. Another victim, Kaykla Nicole Baker, was pregnant.

District Attorney Kirk Adams says Mr. Gilley can soon expect to face a fourth murder charge for the unborn child. Adams continued to say “that’s not an accident, he had total disregard in his actions. He caused the death of three people.”

Judge Fleming set bond at $50,000 each for the three counts of murder. It makes Gilley's total bond at $150,000.

He remains behind bars at the Geneva County Jail.
