‘I couldn’t even commit suicide right’: Trial continues for man accused of intentional crash

LAKE COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - A man on trial for murder is accused of intentionally ramming his car into oncoming traffic in a suicide attempt.

Michael Davis is charged with multiple counts of murder for a July 2017 crash on Chardon Road in Willoughby Hills.

Greg Morawski, 26, was killed, and his fiancée was seriously injured.

Today, in a Lake County courtroom doctors explained what Davis told in the hospital after the crash.

“Concerned about legal ramifications in the future,” one doctor said. She also added that Davis said, "I couldn’t even commit suicide right. I never meant to hurt anyone else.”

Prosecutors said the crash was Davis' third and unsuccessful attempt at suicide that day. Davis' lawyers argue the man on trial for murder was hearing voices that told him to accelerate and turn left.

The jury will have to decide if Davis is guilty, or if he’s not guilty by reason of insanity. If Davis is found guilty, he could get a life sentence with the possibility of parole only after 15 years.
