A former Calhoun man, Randall Luke Baker, 21, living in Summit County, Ohio, has been picked up by the WV State Police on a capias warrant for failure to appear, according to 1st Sgt. Okey Starsick. He is in Central Regional Jail.

Baker entered a guilty plea to "Reckless Driving Causing Serious Bodily Injury," a misdemeanor on November 3, 2016.

He was ordered to complete a pre-sentence investigation and set for sentencing on December 15, 2016, but he failed to appear for three appointments with the Probation Officer and did not show for his sentencing hearing.

Calhoun prosecutor Shannon Johnson said a capias was issued and he was finally arrested in the State of Ohio. He was extradited and will be set for a Status Hearing on the Court's next day. Baker was charged in 2014 in the vehicular death of a Mt. Zion resident that claimed the life of Tammy Jean Cunningham.

In 2015, Baker was indicted in Grantsville for negligent homicide, a misdemeanor; reckless driving causing serious bodily injury, a misdemeanor; fleeing from an officer, a misdemeanor; and failure to maintain control, a misdemeanor.

Sources indicated Baker was traveling over 80 miles an hour when he collided with the Cunningham vehicle on Rt. 16 in front of Bakers Mart, also seriously injuring Michael Cunningham, Sr., husband of the deceased.
