BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Lame Deer man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in a 2014 crash that killed his brother-in-law.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1K7Tyid ) 31-year-old Joseph Sean Little entered his plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Billings. He told the judge that he doesn’t remember anything that happened the day of the crash on Interstate 90 south of Hardin.

Prosecutors say Little hit a truck, swerved, rolled and hit a guardrail. The victim was thrown from the vehicle and died from head injuries.

Little’s blood-alcohol concentration was five times the legal limit after the crash.

Court records identified Little’s passenger only by his initials. Little told the judge the victim was his brother-in-law and a good friend.

U.S. District Judge Susan Watters set sentencing for Sept. 23.
