UPDATE: Mandan Man Charged with Vehicular Homicide Appeared in Court

By  | 

The Mandan man who caused an accident and killed two women was in Morton County Court this afternoon.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jordan Morsette drove east his pickup in a westbound lane on Bismarck Expessway near McKenzie Drive early Saturday morning when he hit a Volkswagen Jetta driving by 21-year-old Shayna Monson head-on.

Monson's passengers, 22-year-old Abby Renschler and 21-year-old Taylor Goven, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Morsette is facing two counts of felony criminal vehicular homicide and one count of injury or death resulting from the crash.

The state prosecutor requested Morsette be held on a $75,000 cash bond because he is a risk to the community.

Morsette pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in 2009.
