A Madill man is wanted in Stephens County for manslaughter in the first degree for a fatality wreck in Duncan dating back to May 2019.

Court records show Kevin Edward Lee Younce Jr. faces a charge of manslaughter in the first degree (HM2) (SIC).

According to an affidavit, Duncan Police received a call at 2:02 p.m. May 30, 2019, in regards to a two vehicle collision on Highway 81 near Fuller Road.

Evidence shows a white 2015 Ram 1500 pickup, driven by Younce Jr. was heading northbound on Highway 81 while the other car, a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, was heading southbound.

According to the report, Younce’s car crossed left of the center line and collided with the front of the Chevy Traverse driven by Megan Edwards, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Younce was transported by AMR to Duncan Regional Hospital and then transported by Air Evac to United Regional Hospital in Wichita Falls, Texas to be treated.

A search warrant was served to collect a blood draw from Younce and it was sent off for testing by the OSBI.

OSBI reported the blood test from Younce was positive for Benzodiazepines with Alprazolam and Lidocaine both present.

Reports indicate the collision was caused by Younce swerving left of the center line in a no passing zone.

Based on the findings and the recommendation of the detective, the judge found probable cause and an arrest warrant for Younce was issued.

As of press time, Younce remained wanted. Once arrested, a bond for the case will be set.
