Mehlville Man Indicted for Manslaughter

Prosecutors said that Elvedin Halkic was drunk when he caused a fatal accident in March.

A Mehlville man was indicted by a St. Louis County grand jury Thursday for involuntary manslaughter.

St. Louis County Police said in a report that Elvedin Halkic, 32, of the 3700 block of Swiss Road in Mehlville, was driving under the influence of alcohol March 11 when he ran a red light at South Lindbergh Boulevard and East Concord Road. Halkic’s car struck a car driven by Edna Sue Binder, 58, of the 4500 block of Haverleigh Place in Concord.

Binder later died from her injuries.

A St. Louis County Police Officer noticed the strong smell of alcohol on Halkic and that he seemed intoxicated. Halkic admitted drinking alcohol before the accident, according to the police report.
