Two people were arrested in connection with a deadly crash in Ellington that happened in October.
Nathan Coles, 24, of Ellington, and 25-year-old Samantha Gruelle of Vernon were taken into custody on Thursday, according to state police.
Coles faced a judge on Friday at Rockville Superior court.
Court officials said he paid his $350,000 bond to get out and made no comment to the media.
On Oct. 20, troopers said they responded to a report about a single car collision on West Road in Ellington.
Kayla Coffin-Houston of North Grosvenordale, a passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced dead on the scene. Investigators said she had not been wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle.
Coles was identified as the driver the car.
He was served a warrant at his home on Thursday.
Troopers said they charged him with second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle, driving under the influence, failure to maintain established lane, second-degree false statement and tampering with a witness.
Gruelle was arrested later in the day on Thursday at her home in Vernon.
She was charged with second-degree false statement and assigned a $5,000 bond. She was given a court date of March 14.
