Alabama man charged with murder in wreck

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Police say they've charged a Montgomery man with reckless murder in a weekend wreck that killed a woman.

Montgomery police say 29-year-old LaDarius Lafitte is charged in the death of 27-year-old Ashleigh Perkins of Montgomery.

A police statement says Perkins was riding in a Lexus that collided with a Dodge Challenger driven by Laffitte on Saturday night. An investigation showed the Dodge was speeding when it struck the car in which Perkins was riding.

No one else was hurt, but Laffitte was arrested at the scene. Court records show he doesn't yet have an attorney to speak on his behalf.
