Douglas County investigators say a domestic dispute preceeded the crash
Douglas County Sheriff Chief Deputy Marty Bilek says Christopher Phelps and his girlfriend, Channelle Tory, got into an argument shortly after midnight at Phelps' home near 87th and Quest.
Bilek says Tory wanted to get her and her three daughters away from the situation and asked Phelps to drive them home. Bilek says Tory was unable to get the kids buckled in, before Phelps sped off. About a block from his home, Phelps lost control of his vehicle and flipped on 87th Street north of Sorenson Parkway
Five year old Mela Skye Torry and four year old Laela Torry were thrown from the vehicle and died from their injuries. A 15 month old child was not injured. Chanelle Torry was injured and is expected to survive.
Bilek says Phelps had been drinking, but refused a sobriety test. He was charged with two counts of felony motor vehicle homicide and refusing to submit to a test.
