TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A teenager is now charged in a deadly Burleson crash that killed a youth pastor and three others.

Ethan Couch, 16, has been charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault.

Police believe Couch was drunk and hit a driver stranded on the side of the road in Southern Tarrant County back in June. Three good Samaritans who were trying to help her also died in the crash. Two other people were severely injured.

In July, Tarrant County Sherriff Dee Anderson said Couch had a blood alcohol level of .24 at the time of the crash, three times the legal limit for an adult.

Couch appeared in court for a detention hearing on Wednesday afternoon, where a judge released him to his parents with an ankle monitor.

A trial date for Couch has not been set. He could face up to 20 years in prison if he’s convicted.
