La Crosse man gets plea deal in fatal OWI crash

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A La Crosse man will spend five years in prison for killing a woman in a drunk driving crash in central Wisconsin.

22-year-old Tyler Deal struck a plea deal. He pleaded guilty in Marathon County Thursday to one count of homicide by driving with a prohibited blood alcohol level.

Five other charges were dropped – including felony counts of homicide by drunk driving and drug intoxication, and marijuana possession.

Authorities said Deal’s vehicle struck a utility pole south of Spencer in February of 2012, killing 22-year-old Paige Delo of Spencer.

Deal must also spend 9 years under extended supervision once he leaves prison. During that time, Circuit Judge Jill Falstad ordered him to speak twice a year in panel discussions about the impact of drunk driving on victims.
