Kile, the son of R&B singer Usher’s former wife, Tameka Foster, and TV executive Ryan Glover, suffered a major brain injury July 6, 2012, after being run over by Hubbard. Kile and a 15-year-old girl were being towed on an inner tube behind a pontoon boat when they were hit, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources previously said.
Kile, who was wearing a life preserver, was unresponsive when he was pulled from the lake and never regained consciousness.
Hubbard, a family friend, was arrested March 1, 2013, after being indicted by a grand jury. Defense lawyers said Hubbard tried to avoid the children and that what happened was a tragic accident.
“At the end of the day, I know he didn’t do it on purpose,” Foster told Channel 2 Action News. “He could’ve only loved Kile.”
Hubbard was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. His sentencing is scheduled for March 5 at 1:30 p.m.
