Mobile man charged with killing motorist while under the influence enters blind plea

A Mobile man who was charged with a 2015 traffic fatality while he was alleged to be under the influence has entered a blind plea, the Mobile District Attorney's office says.

Willie McMillian, 54, was alleged to be under the influence when a vehicle he was operating was involved in a three-car collision in June 2015. Police identified Dominic Gerard Turner, Sr., as the motorist who died in the tragic incident.

A blind plea is a guilty plea that is not attached to a predetermined sentence. Instead, the sentencing is left up to the judge assigned to the case. The practice is similar to a "plea bargain", where, in contrast, the defense and prosecution come to an agreement that the prosecution will recommend a lighter sentence to a judge.

The crash occurred in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 between Rangeline and Riviere Du Chien around 8:30 p.m. on June 6, 2015.

Investigators at the time reported McMillian was driving near the congested area of a pre-existing and unrelated crash in his 2013 Chevrolet Impala. He struck a 2014 Nissan Sentra, which included three passengers: Turner, a woman and the woman's son.

"The impact forced the Sentra into a 2004 GMC Yukon, occupied by two people," former Mobile Police spokeswoman Ashley Rains told media outlets following the incident. "McMillian lost control of his vehicle, left the roadway and entered a wooded area along the interstate."

McMillian was charged with DUI, murder and several charges of assault.

McMillian's criminal record in Mobile County includes a detailed history of traffic crimes related to intoxication and accidents. He was charged for two DUIs in 2009 and 2014, respectively. In July 1984, he was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

The public will learn McMillian's fate on November 30, when he is scheduled to be sentenced.
