December 15, 2004

LIBERTY - A Bradfordsville teenager was indicted Monday on a manslaughter charge involving a death in an automobile crash.

Ramiro Rojas Perez, 18, was charged with second-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence of intoxicants or drugs after an auto accident Oct. 31 in which his passenger, 28-year-old Ciro Alvarez, also of Bradfordsville, was killed.

The accident occurred on Ky. 1552 when Perez lost control of his vehicle in a curve, causing it to run off the road and down an embankment and overturn.

Alvarez was ejected from the vehicle and landed under the vehicle in a creek, according to police reports.

Perez is being held on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. Jan. 24 in Casey Circuit Court.


In unrelated matters, two other people were indicted on endangerment charges.
