NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) - A December sentencing has been scheduled for a Norfolk man charged with the crash deaths of two men.

Court records show 23-year-old Brandon Plante pleaded guilty Monday to two felony counts of vehicular homicide. Prosecutors dropped a drunken driving charge and another misdemeanor charge in exchange for Plante’s pleas. His sentencing hearing is set for Dec. 19.

Authorities say Plante was driving north in a southbound lane of U.S. Highway 81 on June 26 when he struck an oncoming vehicle driven by 32-year-old Tar Eh. Eh and a passenger in the vehicle, 32-year-old Yeh Htoo, were fatally injured. Both lived in Norfolk.
