ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A Waite Park man is charged in a police chase that killed a 30-year-old man and injured his 22-year-old pregnant passenger.

Twenty-two-year-old Timothy Gilles was charged Monday with one count of fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle resulting in the death of another.

Judge Vicki Landwehr set unconditional bail for Gilles at $1.5 million. The St. Cloud Times reports more charges are expected.
