The Amtrak engineer in the train that derailed in Philadelphia in 2015, killing eight, is officially facing charges. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced the charges on Friday against Brandon Bostian a day after a judge ordered the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office to prosecute. The D.A.'s office referred the case to the state to avoid any potential conflicts of interest. Bostian faces eight counts of involuntary manslaughter, one count of risking a catastrophe and numerous counts of reckless endangerment, according to a statement from Attorney General Shapiro.
