Region 8 man charged with negligent homicide

PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) - A Greene County man has been charged with negligent homicide and aggravated assault.

The charges filed at Paragould against 36-year-old Gary Dane Cunningham stem from a March 30 accident in which a car overturned and a 15-year-old passenger was killed. Three other passengers also suffered minor injuries.

Killed in the single-vehicle crash was Robert Howard of Paragould.

Cunningham is being held in the Greene County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in circuit court Monday.
