R&B singer Brandy has been named in a personal injury lawsuit by Donald Lite, who claims he suffers “serious and permanent injuries” while racking up medical bills due to a multi-car pile-up back in 2006.  Lite is also suing Awatef Aboudihaj, who died in the accident.

The suit recounts the events of the accident, in which Brandy rear-ended Aboudihaj, who subsequently rear-ended Lite, and describes how Brandy and Aboudihaj’s inability to travel at safe speeds at a safe distance lead to the car accident.

Lite is currently seeking an unspecified amount for damages.

In Colorado, 18-year old Lamar Roberts has pleaded guilty to charges of child abuse and knowingly/recklessly causing death for the December 2007 killing of 7-year old Zoe Garcia.

The death is due to Roberts’ imitation of the fighting moves found in the video game Mortal Kombat.  Garcia’s half-sister, Heather Trujillo, was also involved in kicking, hitting and slamming Garcia.  Trujillo pleaded guilty to child abuse and negligently causing death back in May and is currently serving six years in Colorado’s youth offender system.

Roberts was scheduled to start his trial in January.  Instead, he will now face sentencing on January 16th.
