MANGUM, OK (KSWO) –More information has come out concerning the man accused of killing a Mangum woman and her granddaughter late Monday night.

Auntra Edmonds, 39, of Lawton is facing two counts of first-degree manslaughter. He is accused of driving the vehicle that killed Wanda Perry and her one-year-old granddaughter.

The crash was not a hit-and-run like it was originally believed.

The affidavit says Edmonds and one passenger remained on the scene and were removed from the vehicle by emergency crews, who said there was alcohol in the car.

However, officials have not confirmed if Edmonds had been drinking. A witness said before EMS arrived, Edmonds asked if the victims were okay.

He and his passenger were then flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City.

Mangum Police filed a warrant for his arrest and he was picked up by U.S. Marshals at an apartment complex in Norman Wednesday night.

He remains in the Cleveland County Jail on a $2 million bond.
