Florida man charged with negligent homicide being extradited from ND

WOLF POINT, Mont. — Montana authorities say a Florida man has been arrested in North Dakota and is being extradited to Montana to face a negligent homicide charge in the death of another Florida man.

Roosevelt County Sheriff Freedom Crawford says police took 46-year-old Charles Bowman Bowen into custody Friday in Williston, N.D., and he's being held in the Williams County Detention Center.

The body of 49-year-old Brian Doyle was found Jan. 20 in a ditch along U.S. Highway 2 near Bainville, a small community near the North Dakota border.

Crawford says Doyle worked for an oil field maintenance company in North Dakota, where an oil boom has attracted workers from across the country.

Home towns of the two Florida men have not been released.
