Omaha driver faces manslaughter charge in death

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been accused of intentionally crashing his pickup truck into a utility pole in a collision that killed his girlfriend.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1qaWNgU ) 26-year-old Nicholas Marescalco appeared Monday in court bruised and in a wheelchair. He faces a manslaughter charge. Court records do not list an attorney.

Prosecutors say Marescalco was driving and arguing with his girlfriend, 25-year-old Sharlee Arnett, when he intentionally crashed the vehicle on July 6. Neither he nor Arnett were wearing seat belts.

The newspaper reports police have found no signs that Marescalco used the brakes on his car before the crash.
