Columbus, NE (AP) - A trial has been ordered for a 46-year-old Genoa (jeh-NOH'-uh) man charged with manslaughter in the crash death of his mother.
Arraignment in Platte County District Court is scheduled March 28 for Michael Logan.
The Columbus Telegram says Logan is accused of driving drunk when he turned in front of oncoming traffic northwest of Columbus on Dec. 10. Authorities say Logan was driving south toward Columbus on U.S. Highway 81 when he tried to turn left. His vehicle was struck on the passenger side by a northbound car driven by 42-year-old Jeannine Velazquez, of Norfolk.
Logan's mother, 63-year-old Lois Reynolds, of Genoa, was fatally injured. Logan and Velazquez were also injured.
Logan's attorney didn't immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.
