A Camden County jury convicted Tiece Riddick of Sicklerville last August on a vehicular manslaughter charge and three counts of assault by auto. The charges stemmed from a July 2009 crash that killed 44-year-old Kathleen Lucas of Windber, a front-seat passenger in the car Riddick hit.READ MORE: Connecticut Man Who Tested Positive For Omicron Variant Resting At Home With Mild Symptoms, Gov.
