The trial for a Benton City man accused of killing his passenger in a drunk-driving crash has been moved to April 25.
Ty A. Moore, 31, is charged in Benton County Superior Court with vehicular homicide for the Oct. 23 incident.
Moore was behind the wheel of a Buick Regal when he failed to stop at a stop sign and crossed into the path of a sedan on Highway 397 in Finley.
He told investigators at the scene he believed the other car was going too fast on the highway, also known as Chemical Drive.
Never miss a local story.
Fawn J. White — who was riding in the back seat with her 3-year-old son — died after being thrown from the Buick. The 34-year-old Hermiston woman was not wearing a seat belt, according to a Washington State Patrol report.
Moore recently was found competent to stand trial. A state psychologist determined he was faking a mental illness.
Prosecutors said Tuesday this is the last time they will agree to a continuance.
They have extended a plea offer to Moore with a March 25 deadline. Details of the offer have not been disclosed.
