A Reeves County grand jury has indicted a man in connection with a fatal car crash on Highway 285 back in May.

Troopers arrested 28 year old Jason Chabarria on May 13th after failing a blood alcohol test.

Chabarria was originally charged with intoxication assault because the Fort Stockton victim, Jose Sarabia Jr. Was only hospitalized, but the charges were upgraded recently to intoxication manslaughter when Sarabia passed away.

The case now goes to District Attorney Randall Reynolds.
