PHOENIX (AP) - A man accused of deliberately driving his vehicle into an assisted care home in Phoenix and causing the death of a 61-year-old man is in jail.

Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes says 48-year-old Edward Orpheus has been booked on one count of manslaughter and six felony counts of endangerment.

Police say Orpheus drove his Nissan into a bedroom at the group home around 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 16.

The vehicle struck the victim, who later succumbed to his injuries at a hospital.

No one else was injured in the incident. The home is occupied by five adult clients and two caretakers.

Police say Orpheus had no connection to anyone in the home.

Holmes says authorities are still not sure what motivated Orpheus to purposely drive into the home.
