Barbara Kentner’s family has been asked to meet with Crown prosecutors and Ontario’s coroner Friday to discuss the case against a man charged with throwing a trailer hitch at the Thunder Bay woman.

Brayden Bushby faces an aggravated assault charge in relation to the Jan. 28 incident.

But after Kentner died July 4, the family had hoped his charges would be upgraded.

“I’m hoping that they do upgrade his charges,” said Melissa Kentner, Barbara’s sister. “”I hope he gets charged with murder.”

Police in Thunder Bay have been silent on the charges against Bushby since Kentner’s death.

    The swine should be charged with murder! He threw tgat trailer hitch, probably trying to hit her in the head! Since when is it OK to throw anything from a moving vehicle? Someone died because of that evil creep and he deserves to go to jail and rot there!

    He needs to be found guilty of murder cuz she did die. Others in the vehicle should be charged too. They knew he threw it n didnt stop him.
