The nephew of model Tyson Beckford has been hit with additional charges of second-degree murder after he was allegedly involved in a drunken joyride that ended in a fatal collision with a New York City bus.

Prosecutors claim Dominic Whilby had been kicked out of the Dream Downtown Hotel club on Feb. 12 after partying with Beckford and Australian model Shanina Shaik, and allegedly stole a delivery van that he planned to drive home.

Instead, he crashed into a transit bus, killing driver William Pena and injuring four others.

Whilby, who was also hospitalized with minor neck injuries, was arrested and charged with manslaughter, two counts of grand larceny, three counts of criminal assault, criminal mischief and criminal trespass.
