19-year-old charged in 2 south-central Kansas crash deaths

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 19-year-old man has been charged in a crash that killed two people last summer in south-central Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Myles Evans was charged Tuesday in Sedgwick County with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

A criminal complaint alleges that Evans was driving under the influence when he struck 72-year-old Paul LaBrue and 70-year-old David Bell around 11:30 a.m. Aug. 21 in a residential area of Goddard. LaBrue’s dog also was killed.

LaBrue and Bell were about two blocks from their homes when they were hit.

John Rapp, who is representing Evans in the case, said Tuesday that he had no formal comment, “other than to say our sympathies go out to the families of the deceased.”

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 8.
