Benjamin Bettencourt to appear in court Monday

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.
