Leonard Man Found Guilty of Son's Murder in 2017 Crash

A Grayson County jury says a Leonard father is guilty of murdering his 7-year-old son in a drunk driving crash last year near the Fannin/Grayson county line. 

Thirty-six-year-old Kristoffer Craft will be sentenced later this year for the death of Kolton Craft. According to the Herald Democrat newspaper Investigators at the trial said Craft was driving drunk while using a cell phone when the accident happened. Kolton reportedly was not wearing his seat belt.

A series of other charges ranging from aggravated manslaughter to aggravated assault were dropped.
