An Atlantic County grand jury has indicted a second man in the death of a 19-year-old woman in an alleged drag race in 2011.

Alec Kavanagh, 20, of Brown Mills, Burlington County, was arrested Monday morning after a jury indicted him last week of vehicular homicide and conspiracy, according to a release from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office. He was transported to Atlantic County jail on $100,000 bail.

Authorities allege Kavanagh and Kevin Dilks, 21, of the Chatsworth section of Woodland Township, Burlington County, were involved in a drag race on Clarks Landing Road in Egg Harbor City in the early morning of Oct. 23, 2011,
