The Santa Ynez man charged with vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated is set to appear in court Monday.
Benjamin Bettencourt entered a not guilty plea back in January.
In November 2012, Bettencourt was reportedly driving with a woman named Jenny Clark on Highway 246 between Buellton and Solvang.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputies say he veered off the road and crashed into a tree.
Clark sustained critical injuries and died a little over a week after the accident.
Bettencourt became a paraplegic in another fatal crash 14 years ago. He was the driver in that accident too.
