The Patrol report indicates a trooper pulled over Edward Meerwald, 63, Noel, at 5:45 p.m. Sunday in McDonald County.
He was cited for DWI and speeding.
Meerwald spent time in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the deaths of Jessica Mann, 7, Joplin, and her grandfather Jim Dodson, 69, Neosho.
According to investigating officers, Meerwald, intoxicated and driving at a high rate of speed, ran his car off Highway 86 near Neosho and killed the two, who were standing in Mr. Dodson's driveway.
The deaths of Jessica Mann and Jim Dodson led to a new law in the state of Missouri, sponsored by Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, which allows prosecutors to charge drunk drivers whose actions lead to someone's death with second degree murder.
The law did not apply to Meerwald, who was charged with two felony counts of involuntary manslaughter and after three changes of venue, first to Jasper County, then to McDonald County, and finally back to Newton County, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to seven years on each count to be served consecutively.
