KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Parkville woman has been charged in connection to a crash that resulted in the death of a 16-year-old girl in Leavenworth.

Amber Alexander, 27, faces one count each of second-degree murder (or, alternatively, involuntary manslaughter), failure to remain at the scene of a crash and interference with law enforcement – tampering with evidence.
