Trial Set in Death of Lansdowne Infant

A 15-day trial has been scheduled for the Leesburg man charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 5-month-old Tristan Schulz.

John Miller IV, 45, was indicted by a Loudoun grand jury on one count of involuntary manslaughter, one count of reckless driving, and one count of failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. If convicted, he could face up to 11 years in prison.

The trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 10, 2017, in Loudoun County Circuit Court.

Investigators say, on Aug. 31, Miller drove through the crosswalk at Riverside Parkway and Coton Manor Drive in Lansdowne, crashing into Mindy Schulz and her infant son. Five-month-old Tristan was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after. Mindy Schulz was injured and released from the hospital after three days of treatment.

    The maximum sentence – 11 years – is not long enough for this guy.

    Why such a long delay in scheduling the trial? That seems very unfair for the suffering family in this situation.
