An employee with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been charged in the death of a South Carolina sheriff's deputy who was thrown from a boat during a training accident, reports the Associated Press.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources charged Fleming late last week in the June 1 death of 30-year-old Anderson County Sheriff's Deputy Devin Hodges.
