A Phoenix man facing vehicular manslaughter and other charges in the death of a passenger in the car he was driving could plead guilty in a hearing today - or his case will go to trial.

Glenwood Carr is accused of driving drunk August 11 and crashing his vehicle, then leaving his overturned car with passenger Steven Sears still inside. Sears died from his injuries, and Carr remained at large for two days before surrendering to police. The Post-Standard is reporting that a deal had been in place in December for Carr to plead guilty, but his case was adjourned until today. Carr's attorney says if no deal can be made today, the judge has promised to speed the process for a trial. Carr remains free on $200,000 bail.
