FRONTENAC, Mo. (AP) - A personal injury lawyer in suburban St. Louis who is charged with killing a woman while road-racing has surrendered to police.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2gyYpkY ) reports that 34-year-old Scott Bailey turned himself in Monday. He was indicted earlier this month in St. Louis County on a charge of first-degree involuntary manslaughter, specifically while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and causing a death. The indictment was suppressed until Bailey’s arrest. Prosecutors also filed a lesser felony as an alternative.

Prosecutors say 73-year-old Kathleen Koutroubis died in July of internal injuries sustained when Bailey and another driver crashed into her sport utility vehicle while racing in Frontenac.

The second driver has been indicted on charges of second-degree murder and DWI as a persistent offender in the same crash.
