Forty-four-year-old Matthew Tsopas of Somersworth is accused of causing the death of 30-year-old Leah Fonda of St. Paul, Minn.

Tsopas, who is due in court in a week, also was indicted on charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless conduct, and others. His lawyer has filed a motion to reduce his bail.
