MATTHEWS, NC -- A man authorities say caused a wreck that killed two women in Matthews has now been charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony death by vehicle.

Police say 28-year-old Justin Jones was arrested Saturday afternoon on the new charges after he was released from the hospital.

Jones was charged with driving while intoxicated after a wreck Wednesday night. Authorities say he was driving an SUV and hit another vehicle, killing 62-year-old Marie Crook and her daughter, 37-year-old Jennifer Hunt.

It wasn't known if Jones had an attorney. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 1.
