Charges filed in 2010 fatal crash in NE Kan.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 25-year-old northeast Kansas man has been charged in head-on crash that killed a Topeka man in 2010.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bGG87C ) that Aaron Emerson Meade, of Meriden, is charged with involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence after a crash in March 2010 that killed 50-year-old Neil L. Highsmith.

Shawnee County District Court records show Meade was charged Nov. 15. He was booked into the Shawnee County jail Thursday, where he was being held on a $50,000 cash or surety bond.

Lee McGowan, chief of staff for the county district attorney's office, said he couldn't comment on the case or why it took more than 3 1/2 years to file charges.
