WESTPORT - A man turned himself in Tuesday to face a manslaughter charge in connection with a crash that killed a Westport Marine in December.

Police say Matthew Packer was drunk when his car crashed on Greens Farms Road, killing his passenger, Lance Cpl. Charles Rochlin.

Packer was released on bond and forced to surrender his passport.

Rochlin, 24, was home on leave when the crash occurred. He had completed one tour in Iraq and was scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan last month.
