    A Stamford man has been arrested and charged in connection with a crash that killed two men in Norwalk in January and police said he was driving under the influence.

    Police have charged 33-year-old Anthony Domond, of Stamford, with two counts of manslaughter in the first degree, operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and reckless driving in connection with the crash at 10:11 p.m. Jan. 8 on Connecticut Avenue that killed two Stamford men, 50-year-old Frank Peterson III and 40-year-old Anthony Johnson.

    Police said Domond was driving west on Connecticut Avenue, near Richards Avenue, when he went into the eastbound lane of Connecticut Avenue and hit a vehicle that was travelling eastbound.

    Members of the Norwalk Police Department, assisted by the United States Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force and Stamford Police Department, served the warrant on Domond Tuesday morning.

    Bond for Domond was set at $200,000.
