SEWARD, Neb. (AP) — A 19-year-old Omaha man has been sentenced to four to eight years in prison after a passenger in his car died in a wreck during a police pursuit.
Julio Fernandez Bonilla was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest to manslaughter.
Seventeen-year-old Jasmin Casique-Negrete of Omaha died in the crash near Seward in June 2020.
The Nebraska State Patrol said a Seward County deputy tried to stop a vehicle near Seward but the driver fled.
The patrol investigator said Bonilla eventually lost control of the SUV, which went off the road.
Bonilla and Casique-Negrete were both thrown from the SUV, which was reported stolen from Harrison County, Iowa.
