SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah repossession agent accused of forcing a woman off the road and killing her while trying to take back her car will likely reach a plea agreement.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2e2oIj7 ) that 50-year-old Kenneth Drew, of American Fork, waived his preliminary hearing on Tuesday and his attorney Loni DeLand says there is a “high likelihood” Drew will accept a plea deal at an arraignment on Nov. 28.

DeLand says he cannot disclose terms of the potential plea agreement.

Drew is charged with manslaughter in the May 17 death of Pleasant Grove mother who had fallen behind on title loan payments.

Prosecutors say Drew aggressively chased 35-year-old Ashleigh Best in the company tow truck until she hit a tree at 50 mph.
