OLATHE, Kan. -- A man charged in September for killing a woman in a crash along Metcalf Avenue in 2016 is now behind bars.

Landunn Richardson, 46, of Kansas City, Kansas, faces either second degree murder or involuntary manslaughter charges stemming from an August 2016 wreck at 52nd Street and Metcalf Avenue that killed Vickie Taylor.

At the time, Richardson had been in and out of the Johnson County court system on parole violations stemming from a DUI charge and driving with a suspended license in an incident from 2013.

Richardson was arrested and booked on the deadly crash charges late Monday. He remains in the Johnson County Jail on a $500,000 bond. He’ll make his first appearance before a judge Tuesday afternoon.
