PROVO, Utah (AP) - A Utah repossession agent accused of forcing a woman off the road and killing her while trying to take back her car has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Court documents show 50-year-old Kenneth Drew agreed the plea deal on Monday that will likely allow him to avoid prison time.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports prosecutors have agreed not to push for a sentence in the Utah State Prison, but Drew could serve a year in jail after a sentencing set for Jan. 10.

He was charged 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.

His attorney Loni DeLand did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
