A man who Elgin Police said fled law enforcement, ran a stop sign and killed a Carpentersville man, has been charged with reckless homicide and had his bond set at $1 million, according to a news release.

Steven T. Luellen was charged with five counts of aggravated driving under the influence and one count of reckless homicide. Both charges are felonies. He also was charged with driving with a revoked license and one count of operating an uninsured motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

On May 27, police said Luellen was fleeing from law enforcement when he drove through a stop sign and crashed into Miguel A. Telez, 35, of Carpentersville. Telez died at the hospital.

On Monday, Luellen was released from St. Alexius Hospital and taken to the Kane County Jail.
