The man accused of stealing a truck and causing a crash that killed a 19-year-old Kauai woman has been indicted for manslaughter, according to a Kauai County spokesperson.

Kauai police had previously charged Cody Safadago, 46, with first-degree negligent homicide, auto theft, and drunk driving for the April crash that killed Kayla Huddy-Lemm.

If convicted of manslaughter, Safadago faces the possibility of life in prison. 

He's expected to be arraigned in Circuit Court on Monday.
