Persistent DWI offender charged in Lincoln County, Missouri, Previous charges include Manslaughter.

A man who was high on pot when he killed a popular youth minister and his young son in a wreck in 1997 will be back in court Thursday facing new drunken driving charges.

The defendant, now 34, was charged as a chronic DWI offender earlier this year after a police officer saw him crash into a large rock and sign near a Winfield gas station, then drive off. Police said he was under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine at the time.

He was charged as a persistent DWI offender and with three misdemeanors — operating a motor vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner, operating a vehicle without maintaining financial responsibility and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident.

He currently is free after posting $20,000 bail.
