Iowan found guilty of vehicular homicide

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A 27-year-old Iowa man has been found guilty of vehicular homicide while drunk.

Austin Hansen, of Reinbeck, was convicted after a nonjury trial. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says the judge issued his verdict Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Hansen was driving his pickup the night of Nov. 13, 2010, as he took 26-year-old Kaley Kennison to her Cedar Falls home. The truck struck a parked vehicle and ran into a retaining wall. Kennison died a short time later. Hansen was injured as well.

Hansen's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 1, and he faces up to 25 years in prison. He's already serving a five-year sentence for a drug conviction.
