An Indianapolis man has been charged with homicide more than four months after he allegedly dragged a severely inebriated female friend out of his car and left her to freeze to death on mound of snow.
The incident resulting in the death of Shanel Smith, a 50-year-old mother-of-two from Indianapolis, took place back in mid-February, but 36-year-old Justin Holman was not charged until June 29.
Holman allegedly told police he didn’t remember why he decided to leave Smith alone in the cold behind a laundromat after removing her from his car when she wouldn’t wake up.
Holman was booked into the Marion County jail on July 1 on a charge of reckless homicide, which is punishable by one to six years in prison. He was freed on Tuesday after posting $3,000 bond.
Marion County does not release inmates’ booking photos to the public, and Holman has not commented on the charges he faces.
