TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Misdemeanor charges are filed against two men Tuesday after a boat accident on Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma that killed a Georgia man in July.

Delaware County prosecutors charged the drivers of the two boats involved in the accident. John Special of Stillwater is charged with negligent homicide and leaving the scene of an accident or collision. Jason Bandy of Tulsa is charged with negligent homicide.

Investigators say it appears both men had been drinking before the accident. Neither one has been arrested.

35-year old Murray McGarver died in the accident after being thrown from the boat in which he was riding.
