BESSEMER CITY, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man with a long criminal record has been charged with murder and other counts after police say he was involved in a street-racing crash that killed a 6-year-old boy last month.

The Charlotte Observer reports Donnie Ray Cobb, 46, of Cleveland County, was charged late Thursday with:

  • second-degree murder
  • reckless driving
  • speed competition
  • driving while impaired
  • assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury

A judge denied Cobb’s request for a bond reduction Friday.

The crash outside of Bessemer City June 26 killed Liam Lagunas of Moore.
