Indiahoma man to go to trial for death of Cache teen

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - An Indiahoma man charged in the death of a Cache teen will soon go to trial.

Wednesday a judge found sufficient evidence for Brian Nuegebauer to be tried for first degree manslaughter.

Authorities say the 47-year-old struck the 17-year-old last year after she drove into his path on Lee boulevard and Deyo Mission Road.

In addition to not having a license for the truck he was driving, police say Neugebaur had previously been charged with driving under the influence, and he did not have the ignition inter-lock device required by the Department of Public Safety on the vehicle.

He is due back in court next week.
