WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A plea hearing has been set for a La Crosse man charged in a drunk driving death in central Wisconsin.

22-year-old Tyler Deal has pleaded not guilty to a half-dozen criminal charges, but reports say a plea deal is in the works.

His hearing is set for July 19th.

Marathon County authorities said Deal hit a utility pole on County Trunk V south of Spencer in February of last year.

A passenger, 22-year-old Paige Delo, was killed.

The driver’s charges include homicide by intoxicated and negligent driving, possession of marijuana, and homicide by the use of a controlled substance. Deal is currently free on bond.
