A 42-year-old Dayton man is facing two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide after he allegedly caused a crash that killed a woman in November.

Johnnie Lee Moore was indicted by a grand jury Friday.

Moore was said to be driving in excess of 110 mph on Salem Avenue when he allegedly struck the vehicle of Theresa Abell near the intersection of Salem and Westbrook Road, according to prosecutors.
