(NEWSER) – As Sunday church services were held throughout Spain in memory of the country's worst train crash in decades, the driver involved was formally charged with homicide. Francisco Jose Garzon Amo—who had previously boasted about speeding—is accused of 79 counts of homicide committed through "professional recklessness," Reuters reports. The 52-year-old was released without bail and ordered to turn in his passport. His train driving license has also been revoked.
