CLAREMORE, Oklahoma -- Prosecutors charged a Claremore teenager with two counts of first degree manslaughter and one count of leaving the scene of an accident in connection with a car crash in Verdigris in June.

Keaton Hannah, 18, is scheduled to appear in a Rogers County District courtroom Wednesday morning.
