A 19-year-old Victoria man, involved in a two-vehicle wreck in July, was arrested Monday on two warrants charging criminally negligent homicide.

Logan Curtis was driving north on U.S. Highway 87 in a 2008 Ford F-150 when he struck the rear end of a 2006 Honda Accord near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 447, according to records.

The wreck killed Judy Sullivan, 65, of Yorktown, at the scene. Her husband, David Sullivan, 67, also of Yorktown, died days later in a hospital.

Criminal negligence means Curtis' standard of care was below the normal, including possibly taking his eyes off the road, said District Attorney Steve Tyler.

Criminal negligence is a state jail felony. It is punishable by six months to two years in state jail, Tyler said.

Curtis turned himself in to the sheriff's office. He later posted bail.
