Singer Luther Vandross will be charged today with one count of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and another count of reckless driving stemming from a Jan. 12 car crash in Studio City that left one man dead and five others injured. Deputy Los Angeles City Atty. Martin Vranicar said the charges will be filed in Van Nuys Municipal Court and Vandross will be scheduled for arraignment within about three weeks. If convicted, the 34-year-old singer could face a maximum sentence of one year in Los Angeles County Jail on the manslaughter charge and an additional six months for the reckless driving count, Vranicar said.
