On Monday, Judge Kevin Griffin rejected a mistrial motion by the defense in the trial of Steven Bourgoin, the man accused of 2nd degree murder in connection with a wrong-way crash on I-89 in 2016 that killed five teens.

Bourgoin’s lawyer, Bob Katims, made the request over testimony by Bourgoin’s ex-girlfriend about whether he told her he saw wrong-way signs on the interstate, saying prosecutors never disclosed the interview they did with the former girlfriend.

Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George countered that prosecutors disclosed everything.

Bourgoin has pleaded not guilty to five counts of second-degree murder in connection to the crash. His lawyers argue he was insane at the time of the crash.
