HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who struck and killed a 14-year-old bicyclist is suing the teen's parents because he says they let their son ride without a helmet.

Forty-eight-year-old David Weaving is serving 10 years in prison for manslaughter and other crimes. He says Joanne and Stephen Kenney, of Prospect, are responsible for their son Matthew's death.

The Kenneys say Weaving's claims are preposterous and causing them pain. Weaving has been convicted of drunken driving four times but was not charged with it in this case.

Prosecutors say he was passing a car at more than 80 mph in a 45-mph zone when his car struck Matthew in 2007. Weaving insists he was doing the speed limit in a passing zone.

Weaving's case is a countersuit to a filing by the Kenneys accusing him of negligence. Each seeks more than $15,000 in damages.
