A 57-year-old man indicted on two counts of criminal negligent homicide and manslaughter after a July crash that killed two women was booked into the Victoria County Jail Monday, according to jail records.

Johnny Drouin, of Monaca, Pa., is accused of recklessly causing the deaths of Kassandra Tamez, 20, of Houston, and Georgia Farrell, 35, of Dayton, in Victoria County while he was working as a commercial truck driver, according to court records. He was arrested and taken to the Beaver County Jail on April 6 in Pennsylvania.

Drouin is scheduled for an arraignment hearing on May 7 before 377th District Judge Eli Garza, according to court records.

Drouin remained in jail Tuesday on a $100,000 bond, according to jail officials.

Manslaughter is a second-degree felony that, if convicted and unless modified by previous convictions or other charges, is punishable by 2-10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Criminally negligent homicide is a state jail felony that is punishable by 180 days to two years in state jail and a fine of up to $10,000, according to the Texas Penal Code.
