A 15-year-old boy from Texas faces a reckless-manslaughter charge in the June death of a 17-year-old Michigan girl who was killed by a falling rock during a church trip to Estes Park, Larimer County prosecutors announced.

The boy’s name has not been released because he is a juvenile. The charge, a Class 4 felony, was filed Tuesday in Larimer County Juvenile Court.

Audra Brownell of Sparta, Mich., was killed when she was hit by a rock at Knoll-Willows on June 17.

She and other members of the Rockford Reformed Church in Rockford, Mich., were on a backpacking trip. She died instantly from “multiple blunt force trauma,” according to the Larimer County coroner’s office, which initially ruled the death an accident.
