Anderson Cooper 360

So far, hundreds of people have put in death and injury claims against G-M.

Today the lawyer hired to manage the company’s compensation fund tied more deaths to the defect and said he expects the number to rise.

One of the 19 people killed was Mikale Erickson. His girlfriend, Candice Anderson, was behind the wheel when they crashed in 2004. Mikale died and Candice was seriously injured. The police report says neither was wearing a seat belt and the car’s airbags did not deploy.

It was found that Candice had taken unprescribed Xanax the night before the crash, and she was prosecuted for homicide. She later pleaded guilty to felony negligent homicide and was sentenced to five years probation and fined.
