WAHOO, Neb. (AP) - An Osceola man is scheduled to be sentenced next month for his role in a Saunders County collision that killed an engaged couple.

Online court records say 43-year-old Douglas Cerny pleaded no contest Thursday to two misdemeanor counts of vehicular homicide. His sentencing is set for Sept. 29.

Authorities say Cerny ran a stop sign Jan. 24 at an intersection with U.S. Highway 77, west of Wahoo. Cerny’s vehicle collided with one being driven by 29-year-old Jessica Thomas. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Thirty-two-year-old Tanner Hauck, who was in the vehicle with Thomas, died several days later.
