GREENSBORO, Ala. (AP) - A man faces charges in a west Alabama Fourth of July boating crash that killed two people and injured five others.
Al.com reports 29-year-old Richard Latham Jr. was arrested Friday in Tuscaloosa and transported to the Hale County Jail in Greensboro. Latham's hometown was not released. A woman who answered the phone at the jail would not release that information, referring all calls to the sheriff's office.
Latham faces two counts of reckless murder and is being held without bond. It was unknown if he has an attorney.
Authorities say Latham was drinking and driving a ski boat on the Black Warrior River when the crash happened about four miles south of the Moundville boat landing.
Killed were 46-year-old Richard Glover, of Akron, and 23-year-old Destiny Graben, of Northport.
