LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A not guilty plea was entered for the man charged with murder in the death of a woman from a weekend traffic accident.

Bradley Allen Caraway, 34, was arrested August 10 for the death of Shanae Moorman. Around 2:50 a.m. August 6, a 2014 Honda Accord registered to Caraway was exiting Interstate 64 East to the Gene Snyder Freeway North when it went out of control and overturned.

Moorman was killed in the crash and for a time Louisville Metro police believed she was the only person in the car. A check of the registration revealed it belonged to Caraway, but he was not at the scene.

Caraway was spotted by a Jeffersontown police officer about three hours after the crash walking on the Snyder at the Taylorsville Road exit approximately two miles from the scene of the crash. Police said Caraway was not wearing a shirt or shoes, smelled of alcohol and had injuries consistent with being in a traffic accident. Caraway was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render aid.

After the LMPD Traffic Unit investigation determined that Caraway was the driver he was arrested August 10 and charged with murder.

During the arraignment, David Lambertus, Caraway's attorney, asked that his client be released on 10% of the $100,000 bond. That request was denied by the judge, but Lambertus was told to make his case before the trial court. Lambertus hopes to have that hearing on Friday, August 12.
