Man Charged In Boating Deaths Of Fiancee & Daughter

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – A man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and homicide in the deaths of his fiancee and young daughter after his boat crashed a dam along the Susquehanna. 26-year-old Cody Binkley of Palmyra is charged in the May 7 deaths of 25-year-old Mary Bredbenner and 3-year-old Madelyn Binkley. Dauphin County prosecutors said Binkley had smoked marijuana before crashing into Harrisburg’s Dock Street Dam and said alleged “drug usage” and “negligent and reckless behavior” warranted the charges. Defense attorney Michael Palermo Jr. called the deaths a “tragedy” and said his client is “still suffering.” He said Binkley attends grief counseling four days a week, including a session with his fiancee’s family.
