    This booking photo provided by the Lebanon, N.H., Police Department Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013, shows Robert Dellinger, 53, of Sunapee, N.H. charged with manslaughter in the deaths of a Vermont couple who were expecting their first child in January 2014. Dellinger, a former Fortune 500 executive, told police he was depressed and aiming to kill himself when he drove his full-size pick-up truck across a grassy highway median on Dec. 7, became airborne and crushed to death the young couple.

    Testimony is scheduled in what is anticipated to be a two-day sentencing hearing for a former Fortune 500 executive convicted of killing a couple and their near-term fetus when his truck became airborne in a botched suicide attempt in New Hampshire.

    Robert Dellinger pleaded guilty in February to negligent homicide for the deaths of Amanda Murphy and Jason Timmons of Wilder, Vermont. He also pleaded guilty to assault for the death of their fetus.

    The 54-year-old Dellinger, who held high-level posts at PPG Industries Inc., Sprint Corp., Delphi Corp. and General Electric Co., told investigators he was trying to kill himself on Dec. 7, 2013, when he steered his pickup across a highway median in Lebanon.

    The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Grafton County Superior Court.
