MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police have arrested a man recruited to work at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and charged him in a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed two people last year.

Sgt. Alyssa Macon-Moore says officers arrested 24-year-old Hunter Queen on Thursday night in connection to an Aug. 18, 2013 crash on Interstate 40 east of Warford.

Two people, 37-year-old Derrick Cross and 34-year-old Jessika Cavazos, died on the scene.

Queen was arrested at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department Training Academy where he was enrolled as a recruit.

Queen is charged with murder, reckless homicide and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Queen.
