A North Carolina man whom authorities say caused an alcohol-related wreck that killed a mother of two and her mother outside Charlotte has now been charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony death by vehicle.
Police say 28-year-old Justin Jones was arrested Saturday afternoon on the new charges after he was released from the hospital.
Jones was charged with driving while intoxicated after a wreck in Matthews, a Charlotte suburb, on Wednesday night. Authorities say he was driving an SUV and hit a Honda CRV, killing 62-year-old Marie Crook and her daughter, 37-year-old Jennifer Hunt.
Hunt's two children were treated for minor injuries at an area hospital.
It wasn't known if Jones had an attorney. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 1.
