Survivor facing charges in Sept. 17 wreck that left a Seymour woman dead


The man who survived a wreck that led to the death of a Seymour woman on Sept. 17 in eastern Jennings County faces a Level 5 felony charge of operating while suspended resulting in death.

The Jennings County Prosecutor’s Office also has requested Class A misdemeanor charges of failure to report a dead body and operating while suspended and a Class B felony charge of false informing against Kevin Eugene Bell, 39, of Dover, Pennsylvania.

Those charges stem from a wreck that led to the death of 37-year-old Nikki K. Hobbs Reed.

The probable cause affidavit was filed Tuesday in Jennings Circuit Court and an arrest warrant was issued by that court.

Reed’s family had reported her missing on Sept. 18 after the mother of three failed to return from a trip to pick up Bell.
