ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico man accused in a fatal rollover accident on the Navajo Nation last year has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say 30-year-old Isaac Gordo, of Torreon, will be sentenced to 37 months in federal prison under terms of his plea agreement Thursday.

Authorities say Gordo was charged with driving recklessly and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol during the fatal accident in New Mexico’s Sandoval County on July 17, 2013.

Prosecutors say Gordo admitted he had been drinking before he drove his vehicle off the roadway and it flipped over on its roof.

Gordo remains in federal custody pending his sentencing, which has yet to be scheduled.
