A grand jury indicted the captain of a Missouri tourist boat that sank and killed 17 people in July, charging him with 17 counts of neglect of duty by a ship’s officer resulting in death, federal prosecutors announced Thursday. Kenneth Scott McKee was captaining an amphibious vessel called a duck boat on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Mo., in July when a sudden storm hit, causing the accident. Nine people from an Indiana family were among the victims.
