CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio teenager has been indicted on charges of vehicular homicide in the suspected drunken-driving deaths of two other teens.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters said today that 18-year-old Kyle Stein is being charged with four counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.
A warrant was issued for Stein's arrest, but it wasn’t immediately clear whether he’s in custody.
Investigators say Stein was drunk and speeding when he lost control and hit a parked car Sept. 4 in Colerain Township. The crash killed his passengers, 16-year-old Rachel McGrath and 19-year-old Eric Moormann.
Deters says Stein tested positive for alcohol and marijuana use.
If convicted, Stein could face up to 16 years in prison and a lifetime revocation of his driver’s license.
