SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A man has officially been charged for his alleged involvement in a deadly crash in Walkerton over the weekend.

Thomas Grzywinski, 46, is charged with causing death when operating a vehicle while intoxicated and causing death when operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater, both Level 4 felonies.

Police were called to Osborne Trail by a neighbor who heard music blaring and shouting outside just after midnight Saturday.

Officers later found the body of Grzywinski's wife, Christie Grzywinski, about 200 feet away from the car.
