Jeff Henry (R), owner of the waterpark, was charged with reckless second-degree murder in the 2016 death of Caleb Schwab (L)
Henry co-owns Schlitterbahn Water Parks and Resorts, where Schwab was decapitated after his raft went airborne and hit an overhead loop during a ride
Before Schwab's death, 13 people were injured riding the slide, including two people who were concussed and a 15-year-old who went temporarily blind.
Schwab was the son of Kansas state Rep. Scott Schwab, and died on a day when admission was free to the families of state legislators. Schwab's family have settled with the park and various companies connected to the slide for $20million.
