DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A plea deal is in the works for a man accused in a fatal hit-and-run incident in Dickinson.

Forty-eight-year-old Timothy Menges is accused of driving drunk a year ago, and striking and killing 47-year-old Tracy Freer in a motel parking lot. Menges has pleaded not guilty to felony charges of negligent homicide and leaving the scene of an accident involving death.

The Dickinson Press reports that Stark County State's Attorney Tom Henning and defense attorney Ryan Heintz are working on a plea agreement. A trial scheduled to begin Nov. 27 likely will be canceled or rescheduled.
