HOUSTON (AP) — Prosecutors are trying to recreate a path of destruction left by a driver accused of killing a boy and homeless man in separate drunken-driving collisions only hours apart in Houston.
Authorities also are looking into whether police could have arrested 34-year-old Blaine Boudreaux earlier in the day for intoxication after they say he rear-ended another vehicle, sending two people to the hospital Sunday afternoon.
Boudreaux was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and causing a crash that killed 6-year-old Joshua Medrano less than three hours after the initial crash. Prosecutors said Tuesday that they also believe Boudreaux ran over and killed a homeless man before the fatal crash.
Boudreaux was charged Sunday with intoxication manslaughter.
It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
