(KMOV) – A drunken driving suspect has been charged in the death of a pedestrian after nine months. The victim’s wife wanted to know why it took so long to file charges in the death of Lazarus Britton.
The 45-year-old was on the sidewalk at Goodfellow and Natural Bridge when a car ran off the street and hit him. Emanuel Smith, 20, was charged with involuntary manslaughter. He has not been arrested.
