OQ=Tim Saunders, News 7, Amherst << Chris Murphy says the accident

County. that killed Omarion Rose is a daily
(END SOT) nightmare for his stepdaughter Kaylie


Silby.


"Obviously, she's depressed.
She's withdrawn. She has a hard time
looking at her own son without breaking
down."


Murphy says Kaylie is still too
shaken to talk about the case, but he's
reaching out to the Rose family with an
apology from Kaylie herself.


"No one could ever fill the void
of a lost child and we understand that,
but our condolences and prayers are
going out to the family."


A lot has changed for Silby since
the morning of the accident. In court,
she says she used to drive up Seminole
drive all the time. Today, Murphy says
she never drives anywhere.


"She really doesn't go out in
public. She's really, like I said,


been withdrawn, and really stayed at
home."


Stayed at home, because he says
the public eye is too much.


Murphy says many judged Kaylie
before her case ever went to trial.


"People, for some reason, have it
in their mind that Kay is driving down
the road, running down toddlers, which
is obviously not the case. No one
would ever hit a child and knowingly
leave him on the side of the road."


He says Kaylie called State
Police just hours after the accident -
as soon as she realized her car may
have been the one that hit Rose.


"By 2:30, 3:00 that same
afternoon, her car was on the way to
Richmond to be tested."


Regardless of how it happened,
Murphy says Silby is living with
regret.


"Regardless of what people think,
she's not a cold blooded murderer."


"More than anything, she is sorry
the incident occurred. She is
definitely sorry for the loss of
Omarion."


And wants to put the accident


behind her.

<< Good evening, I'm chief
meteorologist Robin Reed in the
SkyTracker7 Forecast Center. Tonight,
much like Monday, any storms will be
slow-movers with heavy downpours, small
hail and strong winds. Flash flooding
is possible in some of these
slow-moving storms. Remember, NEVER
drive through flooded roadways and use
extra caution at night. Warm, humid
air will remain in place in advance of


a cold front set to arrive late in the
week. Look for highs in the mid 80s,
and muggy too! Looks like the best
storm coverage will be Wednesday
afternoon and evening as the cold front
approaches. Some may be strong to
severe. Thursday, the front passes
through leading to another afternoon of
scattered storms. Highs will reach the
mid 80s. Drier northwest winds will
follow the cold front passage Friday,
providing a pleasant end to the week
and into the upcoming weekend. Along
with the temperatures, dew points will
also be low. The end result? A mainly
sunny and comfortable weekend! It's
been nearly a month since we've had a
shower-free weekend across this part of
the state. TUESDAY NIGHT:
Shower/Storm. Low: 70 WEDNESDAY: 60%
chance storms in the afternoon/evening.
High: 86 WEDNESDAY NIGHT: 50% evening
storms. Low: 68 THURSDAY: 30%
afternoon storms. High: 85 For the

or not the economy is having a negative
impact on NASCAR - you need not wonder
any longer.


Tonight, Dale Earnhardt Junior's

win this season - confirmed that it is
losing its sponsor for next season

Earnhardt's Nationwide Series team

But get this - not only is the
NAVY leaving the car owned by the most
popular figure in all of NASCAR, it is
doing so with a championship contender.
Brad Keselowski drives Dale Junior's
NAVY Chevrolet and this car is


currently second in the Nationwide

January The report stated that company
owner Teresa Earnhardt had commissioned
the investment banking firm of Bear,
Stearns & Co. Inc. to locate a buyer or
financial investment partner for the
racing giant.


But DEI president Max Siegel on
shot down the report today saying DEI


is not for sale.


That may be the case, but there no
doubt that the new trend in NASCAR -
especially in these economic times - is
to collaborate with outside investment
partners to sure up one's finances.


Everyone from Jack Roush to Ray
Evernham to Petty Enterprises has
bought into this new way of racing

For the Championship, now he is 18th in
the standings and 238 points back with
almost no chance of making up the

races and placed on probation until the
end of the year.


Manion was also fined $100,000.

Harris has a reputation as

from rover to free safety this year.
