The parents of a 4-year-old girl killed in a crash last August have been arrested and police said the little girl’s father was driving drunk and had possibly smoked marijuana as well.
Police said 27-year-old Rossrandon Stanley, of New Haven, was driving recklessly on Interstate 91 North in New Haven around 9:10 p.m. on Aug. 15, speeding and going in and out of traffic when he lost control and flipped the car.
The three children in the car were not in car seats and two were thrown from the vehicle when it flipped over, police said.
Kamorah Stanley, 4, died from the injuries she sustained and police have been investigating for the last year.
Through that investigation, police learned that Stanley did not have a license, had an elevated blood alcohol content and was possibly under the influence of marijuana, police said. He is also accused of lying to investigators when he said he was not driving.
Stanley was charged with manslaughter with a motor vehicle related, interfering with police, providing a false statement, three counts of risk of injury to a minor, reckless driving and operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
His bond was set at $100,000.
Kamorah Stanley’s mother, 29-year-old Rayna Green, of West Haven, was a passenger in the car and has been charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor.
Bond was set at $5,000 and she is due in New Haven Superior Court on Sept. 6.
