RCMP have laid a manslaughter charge in connection to a fatal rollover that happened earlier this Summer.

On August 14 around 11:30 p.m., Three Hills Mounties were alerted about a suspicious Dodge Dakota in the area of Delburne that drove onto a rural property and got stuck.

The driver then reportedly took an Ford F150 from the property.

Police say a man had been following the suspicious Dodge, and then continued following the Ford F150.  The truck was followed from the Delburne area to Highway 42 and Range Road 240 where the two vehicles collided.  The Ford F150 was consequently involved in a rollover.

Thirty-two-year-old Stanley Dick was driving the Ford and died from his injuries after being airlifted to hospital in Calgary.

The Southern Alberta RCMP Major Crimes Unit have now charged Daniel Wayne Newsham, 45, of Delburne, with manslaughter. He has been released from custody on several conditions.

Newsham is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Court October 14.
