South Carolina: Man charged with killing Columbia, S.C. couple in I-95 DUI wreck was on probation for arson in Delaware

DELAWARE— Delaware Deputy Chief Fire Marshal Allen Brown told that Christopher M. Gregg, who is being held without bond in South Carolina, was convicted of domestic arson.
Deputy Fire Marshal Brown said that Gregg was convicted and put on probation for an incident that took place in 2009 to a residence of his girlfriend which took place when no one was inside, which would have been a more serious charge.
Notice of the South Carolina homicide by motor vehicle charge and DUI was forwarded on to the Delaware Attorney General which can put a retainer against Gregg when, upon conviction, he serves his sentence in that state.
Gregg was traveling north on I-95 near Walterboro, S. C. on Feb. 27, 2011, when 911 calls were made by motorists reporting that his Mustang was being operated dangerously, passing other vehicles on the shoulder.
Minutes later Gregg allegedly hit the rear of a Suburban operated by Elaine Lavoie, 70, of Columbia, S. C.  The Suburban was forced off the interstate and into a stand of trees killing her and her husband, Phillip Lavoie, 74.
“Gregg had been back and forth up the east coast,” said Delaware Deputy Fire Marshal Brown, “but we got him” when asked about the arson warrant which had been issued in 2009.
