Former ABC mews correspondent and university professor Robert Zelnick has been convicted of vehicular homicide in the 2011 death of a local motorcyclist Brendan Kennedy. Zelnick was found guilty after a two-day bench trial in Massachusetts. Zelnick worked for ABC news for 20 years before becoming a professor. Kennedy, a 26-year-old chef at East Bay Grille in The Pinehills, died Oct. 7, 2011, after his motorcycle collided with Zelnick’s 2001 BMW sport utility vehicle. Kennedy ironically was on his way to work at the country club restaurant that Zelnick had just left. Zelnick, who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, has not driven since the accident.
