More charges after Spokane cyclist killed in Colorado

Associated Press

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — A 29-year-old woman involved in a crash in western Colorado that killed a Spokane man on a cross-country bicycling trip faces several drug charges.

Prosecutors say Tonie Rosales of Palisade, Colo., used cocaine for two days last September before heading to a court hearing relating to a prior DUI arrest. She struck and killed 25-year-old Eunjey Cho, a volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Spokane, on her way to court Sept. 18 and was formally charged with the drug offenses Thursday.

Rosales already has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide — one alleging DUI and another alleging reckless driving.

Cho was riding from Seattle to Princeton, N.J.
