Jeffrey Hubbard Found Guilty in Death of Kile Glover

In July 2012 Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover's 11-year son Kile was killed in a tragic accident on Lake Lanier after family friend Jeffrey Hubbard crashed his jet ski into Kile, who was riding an inner tube being pulled by a pontoon boat driven by his father.

Yesterday Jeffrey was found guilty on several counts including homicide...

In court this week, Kile’s stepmother, Marsha Glover, cried as she told the court that Hubbard had been driving his jet ski in a reckless manner prior to the collision.
‘He was just zooming back and forth, yelling with no hands standing on the jet ski. Just really crazy and erratic,’ she said.
State investigators said they did not believe Hubbard was intoxicated at the time of the incident. Glover said she and her husband Ryan saw Hubbard racing toward their pontoon boat, which was towing their son and Shepp on an inner tube.
‘We looked up and I saw Jeff coming as if he was coming directly toward the boat. And before I knew it, there was a big cloud of water,’ Glover said.
She told the jury that seconds later, she and her husband realized the jet ski had struck the two children on the tube.
‘I screamed. My husband immediately jumped in the water. I was on the phone with 911, our kids are in the water and we need help,’ Glover said.
Jeffery Hubbard was found guilty of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat traffic violation.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 5
