A South Carolina judge ruled that a woman who is being accused of killing a bride after she reportedly drove under the influence must remain in custody while she awaits trial.


On Tuesday, Jamie Lee Komoroski, 25, was denied bond.

Officials claimed that she exceeded the speed limit and crashed into a golf cart escorting a couple on their wedding day. A toxicology study stated that her blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. 

Komoroski is accused of three counts of drunk driving, causing death as well as reckless vehicular murder.

Attorneys representing the 25-year-old requested a $100,000 bail with the requirements that she enroll in a rehabilitation program, live under her mother’s care, and refrain from using a car or drinking alcohol.

They stated that she did not represent a risk to the public or will flee and also cited her absence of a criminal past. 

The night of April 28th, Samantha Miller and Aric Hutchinson had just left their wedding reception on a golf cart with two other passengers when Komoroski crashed into them with her Toyota Camri.

Although Hutchinson was discharged from the hospital just days later, Miller tragically passed away. The two other passengers survived their injuries. 

Lisa Miller, the bride’s mother, appeared in court during the hearing.

“She didn’t just kill my child,” she said tearfully. “She killed all of us. “

According to the case’s affidavit, the suspect refused to complete a sobriety test at the scene and required assistance from a responding officer to stand up. 

In a statement, the Miller family attorney Jerry Meehan said that the family was satisfied with the result and agreed with the judge’s finding that Komoroski “was a danger to the community.”

The suspected killer is being held at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center in Charleston.

The judge stated in court that if a trial has not happened by the spring of 2024, he will allow a $150,000 bond along with house arrest.
