ANCHORAGE (AP) A man was charged with manslaughter in the death of a woman whose vehicle was forced off the road last year, causing it to flip several times, according to Anchorage police.
Gail Fejes was killed the morning of June 27, 2004, and her 10-year-old son was injured. Both were not wearing their seat belts and were thrown from the vehicle.
Police initially thought Fejes died in single-vehicle rollover in her sport utility vehicle. But the boy who lived through it told them otherwise. Now officials say it was a road rage homicide by a driver who ''brake-checked'' Fejes, forcing her off the road.
Police said Tuesday their investigation took off when a tipster who called months after the wreck gave them additional information that backed up the boy's story about another driver.
