Accident Or Not: Man Charged With Homicide In Death Of Tameka Raymond’s Son

March 2, 2013  |  


Tameka Raymond, if you’ll recall, had quite a traumatic 2012.

While she lost primary custody of her two youngest sons with singer Usher, the saddest thing that could happen to a parent occurred: she had to bury her son. Kile Glover, who was only 11 years old, was killed when a man, allegedly a friend of the family, lost control of his jet ski and ran into an inner tube that Glover and another young friend were sitting on.

Well, in what some are considering shocking news, TMZ has learned that 38 year old Jeffrey Simon Hubbard has been arrested for the accident.  He was indicted on Thursday by a grand jury and is charged with Homicide by Vessel, Serious Injury by Vessel and Reckless Operation of a Vessel.

Hubbard is currently being held in a Hall County, Georgia jail without bail.  He will see a judge at some point this weekend to see if he can be released on bail.

It will be interesting to see what evidence led to this arrest seven months later because by all initial reports by the police, Hubbard was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time.  It, sadly, seemed like a tragic and unfortunate incident.

There has been no comment at this time from Tameka or her ex-husband and Kile’s father, Ryan Glover.

  • That’s My Story

    I’m thinking this is a high profile case and because Usher’s name has been mingled in this case, it has made it necessary for someone to be charged. Contrary to popular opinions, the police does go around charging peope with crimes they did not willfully committ. Why do you think there are so many exanerated people coming out of prison?

    I’ll be a black conspiracy theorist and say that they ar only doing this because he is black. America means to break down the black community by taking away our men, and so far it has worked.

    Maybe manslaughter? Homicide would mean there was intent. I’d hope that there was no intent. Geez.

  • All of the those charges seem relevant to me.

    They don’t just go around charging folks with crimes unless they have a case. I’m interested to hear what this evidence is.

      I second that. 7 months is a loooooooong time to wait before charges are pressed. I hate that this will reopen wounds for both Tameka’s family and his.

    I definitely don’t think this man meant to kill Kyle. It was just a sad and unfortunate accident. Honestly tragic accidents happen like this happen everyday. Not unless ill intent can be proven I don’t see how he was charged with murder.

    • Not murder, manslaughter via negligence is possible and should be pursued.
