LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 23-year-old Lincoln man has pleaded no contest to manslaughter for a motorcycle crash that killed his girlfriend more than two years ago.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/2gR0k2f ) that Tyler Wilson entered the plea Thursday. A no contest pleas is one in which the defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges prosecutors have enough evidence to convict.

Wilson was driving his motorcycle with his 21-year-old girlfriend, Jessie McCain, on the back of the bike in July 2014. Prosecutors say he was traveling at more than 80 mph on a street where the speed limit was 40 mph when he hit a Jeep, killing McCain.

Wilson faces up to 20 years in prison when he’s sentenced in February.
