A Helena man has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide while under the influence in an accident when he struck and killed a man on a bike back in September.

Joel Brett Powers entered his plea yesterday for the September death of 29-year-old Benjamin John Homan. Homan was riding his bike home on a rainy night when he was struck by Powers and killed at the scene. Powers entered his plea deal two weeks before he was set to go to trial, in exchange for the deal, prosecutors dropped the aggravated DUI charges and failure to remain at the scene. His bail is set at $50,000 and he is scheduled for sentencing April 7th.
