He is charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle for a July 15 crash that killed two. Prosecuting Attorney Tara Jenswold said she expects to file more charges after a preliminary hearing in August.

Swanson is accused of being under the influence when he hit another car on the 5200 block of E 2nd Street in Superior. A 23-year-old man died on scene and an infant died later after being taken off life support.
