GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A 44-year-old Elm Creek man has been convicted of vehicular homicide and drunken driving for causing the fatal plunge of his sport utility vehicle into a Grand Island detention pond.

The Grand Island Independent (http://bit.ly/1NKcTcn ) reports that a Hall County jury found Larry Gydesen guilty of the counts on Friday. Gydesen faces up to 20 years in prison when he’s sentenced Nov. 19.

Police say Gydesen was driving under the influence when he drove his SUV into the pond Oct. 12. The body of his passenger, 44-year-old John Zebert, was pulled from the water the next day.
