LOGAN, Iowa (AP) - A western Iowa man accused of killing a pedestrian while driving drunk on July Fourth has pleaded guilty.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/23doGoq ) that 26-year-old Austin Arndt, of Logan, entered the plea Monday to a charge of vehicular homicide while intoxicated. His sentencing is set for April 18.

Authorities say the body of 50-year-old Charlotte Anderson was found a little after 11:15 p.m. on July Fourth last year along Iowa Highway 127 on the north side of Logan. Friends and family told investigators they think Anderson had been walking from her home nearby to watch a band perform in downtown Logan.

Authorities say Arndt told officers he’d been at a bar and drank 15 to 17 beers within less than six hours before the accident.
