SAC CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 19-year-old will stand trial in the August 2014 crash deaths of two teenage girls in western Iowa, now that prosecutors have withdrawn a plea offer.

Trevor Feauto was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday on two felony counts of reckless vehicular homicide. He’d pleaded guilty. But the county attorney says he withdrew the offer because relatives of the two girls say the deal doesn’t provide adequate justice.

A date hasn’t been set for Feauto’s trial on four counts: two for reckless vehicular homicide and two for felony vehicular homicide while intoxicated.

Sac County authorities say Feauto was driving drunk on Aug. 23, 2014, when his pickup crashed into a car near the town of Breda (BREE’-duh). Sixteen-year-olds Bailey Jacobsen and Lindsey Quirk were killed. Both were Wall Lake residents.
