YORK, Nebraska — An August sentencing has been scheduled for a 38-year-old York man convicted in the crash death of a teacher from Aurora.

The York News-Times says (http://bit.ly/Uc7GQO ) Otis Newcomb pleaded no contest to felony manslaughter on Tuesday in York County District Court. Prosecutors had lowered the charge from vehicular homicide and dropped another charge in exchange for Newcomb's plea.

Authorities say the van Newcomb was driving on Nov. 2 crossed the center line on U.S. Highway 34 about two miles west of York, striking a pickup. Thirty-one-year-old Lauren Akerson was a passenger in truck, and she was fatally injured.
