TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A 25-year-old northeast Kansas man has been charged in head-on crash that killed a Topeka man in 2010.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bGG87C ) that Aaron Emerson Meade, of Meriden, is charged with involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence after a crash in March 2010 that killed 50-year-old Neil L. Highsmith.
