UPDATE @ 11:30 a.m. (Jan. 8)

The next hearing in the case against Trey Blevins, charged with aggravated vehicular homicide in the deaths of two Greenon school district students, is set to happen in March. 

An 18-year-old Greenon High graduate who was driving during a crash last August that claimed the lives of two Greenon boys is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on Monday in Greene County Common Pleas Court.

On Aug. 20, authorities said Trey M. Blevins lost control of a 2005 Toyota Corolla and crashed into a tree on the side of Wilkerson Road in August.

The two rear seat passengers, 17-year-old David Waag and 15-year-old Connor Williams, died as a result of their injuries. Blevins and the front seat passenger, 17-year-old Zacharia Knauer, were treated for their injuries at Soin Medical Center.

The Greenon community continues to mourn for Waag, a senior soccer player, and Williams, a sophomore at Global Impact STEM Academy who played football for Greenon.

In addition to Monday, Blevins is scheduled to be in Judge Stephen Wolaver’s court in March for a suppression hearing.

In December, tests showed Blevins had three times the state’s legal limit for cannibinoids, a substance found in marijuana, at the time of the crash.

Blevins’ lawyer, Jon Paul Rion, downplayed the importance of the test result, noting marijuana can be detected for 30 days.

But on Dec. 26, Rion filed the suppression motion, prompting the court to schedule a March 7 hearing.

Blevins, secretly indicted on Nov. 30 on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs, remains free after posting a $50,000 bond.

As a condition of bond, Blevins was to complete a “chemical dependency evaluation” and follow treatment recommendations.

Monday’s hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m.
