Wednesday morning, an Omaha accused in a deadly DUI crash over the weekend will appear in court. 

Investigators say 22-year-old Alberto Castro-Sanabria was drunk when he crashed near 31st and Marcy early Saturday morning. 

His passenger, 17-year-old Luis Castillo-Cabrera, died from injuries suffered in the crash. 

Initially, Castro-Sanabria was charged with DUI and reckless driving, but that charge was upped to motor vehicle homicide after Castillo-Cabrera died Monday. 

In court on Wednesday, he was held on $1 million bond.
