    the estate of Amanda Murphy sued Robert Dellinger in Grafton County on Feb. 20, the day after he pleaded guilty to causing her death and Jason Timmons' of Wilder, Vermont. He also pleaded guilty to assault for the death of their fetus.

    The lawsuit seeks damages for Dellinger's "wanton, reckless and grossly negligent" conduct.

    Dellinger hasn't been served with the suit yet. Dellinger's lawyer said he wasn't attempting suicide, but rather suffering from delirium due to a "toxic regime" of medications.
