Man charged in death of Newton teen


A 41-year-old man was charged this week in the death of a Newton teenager who died in a traffic accident.

Daniel Edwards was charged Tuesday with homicide by vehicle, driving while intoxicated and other drug related charges.

Newton police say Edwards was driving his vehicle when he hit 14-year-old Brendan O'Brien in April. O'Brien was walking in the street when he was hit.

O'Brien died at a Des Moines hospital two days later.
