MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Bond has been set at $125,000 for a Citronelle man charged with three counts of murder and leaving the scene of an accident that killed two brothers and a teenager.
Michael Andrew Loper is accused of causing a wreck by bumping a car that was carrying 18-year-old Mary Allyson Baker of Mobile, and
two Irvington brothers, 17-year-old Brian Matthew "Matt" Willis Jr., and 11-year-old Brandon Christopher Willis.
At Monday's bond hearing, Mobile County prosecutors say Loper was chasing a third car and the Baker vehicle was between them when
he bumped it to get to the other car. Baker's car flipped and crashed into a tree.
Prosecutors say Loper was traveling an estimated 100 mph. He was arrested Saturday, the day after the crash along U.S. 45 in north Mobile County.
