A man with previous convictions for driving under the influence was charged with manslaughter Friday following a fiery rollover crash in February.
Passenger Amanda Perez, 31, was killed when the 1993 Mazda 929 she was riding in struck a tree near 700 S. 89th East Ave., rolled and caught fire around 2 a.m. on Feb. 20, police said.
Stormey Wayne Jordan, 25, is charged with first-degree manslaughter and driving with a suspended license, filings show. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The wreck came less than a year after Jordan allegedly rear-ended a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and four types of prescription medications, including a narcotic pain reliever and a muscle relaxant, court records show.
A charge of DUI resulting in an injury accident is pending against Jordan in the 2011 case. He received suspended sentences after pleading guilt to DUI in 2009 and 2010, court records show.
Court records described Jordan as white, 6-feet-3 inches tall and 200 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown hair.
