COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A man who was indicted in connection with the death of a Boone County teen has been arrested.

Jordan Hart, 20, was indicted last week by a Kenton County grand jury on one count of unlawful transaction with a minor.

Investigators say Hart gave alcohol to Karen Kappelman, 15, during a party in Kenton County in February. Kappelman was found dead later that night, barely clothed and laying in the snow near her family's apartment in Walton. The Boone County coroner said she died of hypothermia, but that ethyl alcohol intoxication also contributed to her death.

Hart was arrested over the weekend and arraigned in Kenton County on Monday. His bond was set at 10 percent of $5,000.
