Teen faces OUI charges in former football star’s death

LUNENBURG, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man authorities say was drunk when he crashed his car, killing one of his passengers is headed to court.

Joseph Kapp, of Gardner, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges including vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol in connection with the crash at about 3:15 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say the 19-year-old Kapp lost control near the crest of a hill in Lunenburg and struck several trees. Eighteen-year-old Austin Robbins, a former star football player at Lunenburg High School, died.

Another passenger was taken to the hospital.

Kapp was held over the weekend on $10,000 bail and it could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.

About 200 people attended a vigil for Robbins on Sunday, remembering him for his positive outlook.
