Kansas Man Charged With Manslaughter Over Deadly Wreck

staff - May 22, 2016 7:18 am

A Kansas jury has cleared a man of attempted-murder charges linked to a shooting nearly a year ago.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A Wichita, Kansas, man is accused of recklessly causing the crash-related deaths of two clients of an organization that helps adults with developmental disabilities.

Prosecutors in Sedgwick County charged 56-year-old Bret Blevins on Friday with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the May 6 wreck. He’s also charged with aggravated battery, leaving an accident scene and driving with a suspended or canceled license.

Authorities say Blevins was driving a borrowed Cadillac sport utility vehicle when he ran through a stop sign and hit a van occupied by three residents and two employees of the Starkey organization.

Two of the residents, 46-year-old Dirk MacMillian and 25-year-old Dusty Atterbery, were killed.
It was not immediately clear Friday if Blevins has an attorney.
