(WMC-TV) - A former police officer was arraigned Tuesday on charges stemming from an accident that killed a mother and daughter while he was on-duty.

Alex Beard is charged with two counts of vehicular homicide for the crash that killed 53-year-old Delores Epps and her daughter, 13-year-old Mackala Ross.

Investigators say Beard was speeding when he crashed into the family's vehicle. Beard says he was responding to a call.

Beard was fired from the Memphis Police Department in February.

The former officer posted a $20,000 bond and is expected to appear in court again next month.
