MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

More than a year after a deadly accident in Madison County, an Ardmore man is behind bars.

A grand jury indicted Jessie Morris for manslaughter. Alabama State Troopers arrested him Thursday afternoon. Authorities said Morris turned himself in.

The charge comes after a deadly crash in September of 2012. Two cars and an SUV collided on Highway 53 in Harvest. 25-year-old Brian Couch died at the scene.

Troopers booked Morris into the Madison County Jail. His bond is set at $30,000.
