TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler says he’ll appeal a ruling allowing a manslaughter convict to be released on bond.

Kunzweiler told reporters Friday that he’ll ask the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to weigh in on Thursday’s ruling to grant bail for Steven Wade Jameson while he challenges his conviction.

Jameson has served four years of a 24-year sentence after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter while driving under suspension. Jameson was driving an SUV that crashed into a car in Sand Springs, killing Angela and Michael Mulanax and their 18-year-old son, James.

Jameson is challenging the conviction based on a recent ruling that suspension of his driver’s license was not valid.

Kunzweiler says the ruling that the license suspension wasn’t valid is being appealed and that bond is not appropriate.
