Richard Ashby,

Joseph Schweitzer, William Raney II, and Chandler Seagraves were charged with negligent homicide and involuntary manslaughter after their jet severed a gondola cable in Italy on Feb. 3, killing 20 people. Seagraves's and Raney's charges were later dropped because they were not in direct control of the operation of the jet; Ashby and Schweitzer could face life in prison if found guilty in their trials.
