WYANDOTTE, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a Detroit man has been charged in connection with a suburban police chase that left one person dead.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Thursday that 33-year-old Eric Turnipseed of Detroit was charged with second-degree murder, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving causing death and driving on a suspended license. He’s expected to be arraigned later Thursday in a Wyandotte court.

Prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller says she’s not aware of an attorney representing Turnipseed.

Investigators say Turnipseed fled Wyandotte officers on Monday night and a passenger, Joshua Nance, was killed after the vehicle crashed, rolled and caught fire nearby in Lincoln Park. Police say the driver had failed to heed a red light before the chase began.
