MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Milford man is facing arraignment on manslaughter and reckless driving charges in the deaths of two pedestrians in February.

James Dorso is scheduled to appear in Milford Superior Court on Tuesday. He’s been free on $25,000 bail since his arrest earlier this month.

Police say Dorso’s SUV struck a family walking along Route 1 in Milford on Feb. 11, a day after a blizzard hit the Northeast. Authorities say sidewalks on both sides of the street were covered with snow.

Fifty-three-year-old Kevin Tanksi died two days after the accident. His wife, 51-year-old Brenda Tanksi, died five days after the crash. Their 21-year-old daughter suffered minor injuries and a fourth relative wasn’t injured.

A phone listing for Dorso couldn’t be found and it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
