Man stopped wife from driving drunk.
Police charged him when she died walking home

Jason Todd walked into Friends Steakhouse in Clanton where his band was playing the final set one summer night three years ago. Tonya Anderson, his wife, stood outside in the parking lot, drunk, demanding to drive herself home. Todd told her she could not drive, and he would take her shortly after he paid his tab.

“I’m not mad at you” he repeated. Belligerent, she threatened to leave. “Fine, walk home,” said Todd, believing she would not.

Anderson began walking, as spelled out in court records and police reports, and did not make it far before being struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle.

“I loved my wife. Still do, and always will,” Todd, 42, told investigators when they accused him of causing his wife’s death, according to the lawsuit.
