PHOENIX (AP) - Prosecutors say a man has been indicted in a fatal 2012 drunken-driving crash in Phoenix.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office says 21-year-old Milad Sharifi Melehbidi was indicted by a county grand jury on suspicion of manslaughter and aggravated DUI.

Court records show the wreck occurred just after midnight on Nov. 26, 2012.

The car Melehbidi was driving left the roadway and rolled several times, ejecting him and his passenger.

The Arizona Republic reports ( that police found beer bottles in and outside of the car at the scene.

A test conducted at the hospital indicated Melehbidi had a blood-alcohol level of 0.101 percent.

The case was submitted to the county Attorney’s Office last June. It was delayed in part because the original prosecutor assigned to it left the Attorney’s Office.
