Mohave Valley man accused of negligent homicide

KINGMAN, Ariz. -- Authorities in northwestern Arizona say a man has been arrested after two juveniles allegedly overdosed at his home and one later died.

Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 31-year-old Richard Allan Falstad was taken into custody Friday.

He's being held at the county jail on suspicion of negligent homicide and two counts of child abuse.

Two juveniles reportedly overdosed on an undisclosed illegal substance while at Falstad's Mohave Valley home on Sept. 21 and one had seizures.

Falstad drove one of the juveniles to a walk-in clinic in Bullhead City. The other youth was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital and later died. The names of the two juveniles weren't released Friday.

Sheriff's detectives say evidence seized from Falstad's home led to his arrest. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
