Lawyers for alleged drunk driver accused of killing a bride and seriously injuring her husband as they left their reception in a golf cart say there should be no ‘rush to judgement’ from their customer.

Jamie Lee Komoroski, 25, is charged with the death of Samantha Miller, 34, who died April 28 after being hit by a car Komoroski was driving on a road in Folly Beach, South Carolina. Miller and her husband, Aric Hutchinson – who had married hours earlier – were leaving their wedding reception in a golf cart.

First responders said Komoroski’s breath smelled of alcohol. She said she had had a beer and a shot of tequila about an hour earlier and “firmly refused” to take a sobriety test.

Komoroski’s attorneys, Nathan S. Williams and Christopher S. Gramiccioni, released a statement to the Post & Courier, according to the New York Post.

‘We cannot understand what the families are going through and offer them our deepest condolences,’ the attorneys reportedly said in the written statement. “We just ask that there is no rush to judgement. Our judicial system is founded on the principles of justice and mercy, and that is where all the facts will come to light.
