(COLUMBUS) - 25-year-old Jacob Tolbert, who is accused of reckless homicide in the death of a fellow bar patron last April, is in the midst of a nine day trial in Bartholomew Circuit Court.

According to police, Tolbert is accused of backing a pickup truck over 27-year-old Tommy Brazzell of Vallonia outside the Caddies Pub in Columbus.

Brazzell, formerly of Bedford, was a personal trainer at a Seymour health club.

Tolbert is charged with reckless homicide, leaving the scene of an accident causing death and possession of marijuana.

Police received a number of reports on April 18, 2013 reporting that a vehicle, driven by Tolbert, had struck Brazzel and then fled the scene.

County Coroner Larry Fisher says Brazzell died almost immediately of multiple trauma to the head.

Tolbert faces a preliminary charge of possession of marijuana because officers found a small amount of marijuana on Tolbert at the time of his arrest.
