GREENSBORO, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have added new charges against an Alabama man accused in a Fourth of July boating crash that killed two people and injured five others.

Hale County District Attorney Michael Jackson said Monday counts of first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment have been added to charges faced by 29-year-old Richard Latham Jr.

Al.com reports Latham was arrested Friday in Tuscaloosa on two counts of reckless murder. He has been jailed in Greensboro on a $487,000 bond. It was not immediately known if Lathan had an attorney.

Authorities say Latham was drinking and driving a ski boat on the Black Warrior River when the crash happened July 4 south of the Moundville boat landing.

Killed were 46-year-old Richard Glover, of Akron, and 23-year-old Destiny Graben, of Northport.
