A St. Louis County Grand Jury indictment was unsealed in court last week in connection with the crash that killed Chesterfield resident and Whitfield School teacher Janet Esrock.
McCormick is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 9 on the two criminal counts in St. Louis Circuit Court.
The indictment against Patrick McCormick, 53, of Chesterfied, includes identical criminal charges to those filed by prosecutors in the case, First Degree Involuntary Manslaughter and Second Degree Assault, according to the office of state courts administrator website CASENET.
The indictment came down on Wed., Oct. 19, according to CASENET.
Authorities said McCormick was intoxicated and driving on the wrong side of the road August 26 when he struck a car driven by Janet Esrock, 50, near the Riverdale intersection on Wild Horse Creek Road.
Esrock never regained consciousness and died from injuries two weeks later. Her son, Jonathan Esrock, 16, was a passenger in her car and suffered serious injuries, but survived the crash.
