HAMPSTEAD, N.H. — Police say a New Hampshire man has been indicted on negligent homicide and drunken driving charges in a crash that killed a motorcycle passenger.

Police say 47-year-old Randall Stewart of Windham crossed into oncoming traffic on June 26 in Hampstead and crashed into two motorcycles that were riding in a charity fundraiser.

The crash killed 49-year-old Marceline Weaver of Salem. She was riding with her husband, William Weaver, who suffered minor injuries.

A third rider on a separate bike, James Sousa of Salem, was also hospitalized.

The three had been taking part in “The Knight Ride,” a charity run to raise money in honor of Windham and Salem police Officer Mark Knight, who passed away from cancer.

An officer at the scene told the court that he didn’t smell alcohol on Stewart’s breath, but Stewart couldn’t remember his name. Police said that the night before, Stewart was arrested and charged with DWI in Pelham.

WMUR-TV says Stewart was indicted on Thursday.
