CROWN POINT | A Chesterton man is scheduled to face trial Nov. 18 in a drunken driving case that claimed the life of a St. John woman.
Michael Knezevich, 26, is charged with four alcohol-related felonies in connection with a three-car collision that killed Sandra Marvel, 66, of St. John, in September.
Marvel was a passenger in a car driven by her husband, who was hospitalized in serious condition after the crash.
The driver of the third vehicle was treated at a local hospital and released.
Police said Knezevich was driving north on U.S. 41 when he disregarded a red light and crashed into the passenger side of the Marvels' car, which was heading east on U.S. 231.
