Motorist Charged In Teacher’s Death

KSAL StaffFebruary 24, 2015

A 40-year-old woman is facing charges after authorities say she fatally struck a Newton teacher with her vehicle while the teacher was jogging last year.

Kala Horton of Halstead is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter and one count of vehicular homicide in the death of 28-year-old Crystal Stauffer.

Stauffer was a physical education teacher at the Santa Fe 5/6 Center.

County Attorney David Yoder says he waited until a blood test on Horton was finished before filing charges against her.

A blood sample was drawn from Horton after Stauffer’s death and was submitted to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation lab. The Harvey County Sheriff’s Office said the test result was positive for methamphetamine.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Horton has an attorney.
