Sterling man charged in fatal drunk driving case among 49 indicted by grand jury
Pierpaolo Verrone, 47, was indicted on charges of involuntary manslaughter and driving under the influence in connection with the Aug. 15 incident.
Jeffrey A. Carter, 53, died from his injuries at Inova Loudoun's Lansdowne campus following the 10 p.m. incident, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Carter was hit by Verrone's 2010 Ford Explorer as he was attempting to cross Cascades Parkway, just south of Middlefield Drive in Sterling. Verrone stayed at the scene following the crash, deputies said.
Verrone faces a jury trial in March, according to court records.
Other indictments included Brian Joesph Philpot, 29, of Ashburn, who faces charges of malicious wounding and shooting, stabbing or wounding in the commission of a felony.
Philpot was arrested June 21 following a 5:33 a.m. domestic-related altercation in the 22900 block of Eversole Terrace.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said a man and woman were assaulted during the altercation with Philpot. The man suffered lacerations after being assaulted with a knife. Both victims were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Jonzel Maurice Bailey, 22, a former Sterling resident, was indicted on a bank robbery charge.
Loudoun deputies said on Jan. 2 Bailey went into the PNC Bank in the 100 block of Free Court in Sterling Park and demanded cash.

They include David C. Russell, Jr., 21, of Leesburg, John C. Barwis, 23, of Ashburn, Jordon L. Harwell, 29, of Sterling and Dean W. Ballard, 20, of Harrisonburg.
All were indicted on charges of street robbery with a gun, two counts of abduction with intent to extort money and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
The robbery occurred Oct. 14 at an apartment in the 100 block of North 21st Street in Purcellville. At around 11:24 p.m., four men entered the apartment brandishing guns. The suspects assaulted one man in the home before taking cash and fleeing.
