Woman Held in Roadside Fatalities Wants Charges, Bond Lowered

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A woman charged with fleeing after two highway workers were killed is trying to get her bond lowered and the charges against her reduced.

In a letter to the magistrate handling her case, Ramona I. Morgan also said she has fired her attorney.

Morgan, from Washington state, faces charges in two counties over the Sept. 11 deaths of two workers who were struck by a truck on a stretch of U.S. 59 south of Lawrence.

In Osage County, Morgan is charged with fleeing law enforcement officers, reckless driving and four traffic infractions. She wants those charges reduced to a single count of speeding.
