MOUNT AIRY, Md. (AP) — Howard County police have charged a man with DUI and negligent homicide in a pickup truck crash in Mount Airy.
Officers arrested 29-year-old Karl Tomanek of Mount Airy on Monday in the death of 26-year-old James Nicholas Dejordy of Clarksville. Tomanek was released on $50,000 bond.
