UPDATED: Newlywed Killed in Honeymoon Crash

ROLLINSFORD, N.H. (AP) – Police have charged a man with drunk driving after he crashed into a car driven by a Minnesota couple on their honeymoon in New England, killing the bride and seriously injuring the groom.

Killed in the accident Saturday in Rollinsford, N.H., was 30-year-old Leah Fonda of St. Paul. Her husband, 30-year-old Brian Preiss of St. Paul, was hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was listed in fair condition Monday.

Police said the driver, 43-year-old Matthew Tsopas of Somersworth, N.H., was hospitalized in Dover, where he was charged with negligent homicide, felony driving under the influence of alcohol and felony conduct after an accident. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Relatives said the couple, both Mall of America employees, got married just over a week ago.
