EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A southwestern Illinois man pleaded guilty during his trial on charges that he drunkenly caused a 2010 two-vehicle wreck that killed the other driver.

Thirty-six-year-old James Griesbaum of Aviston pleaded guilty to two felony DUI-related counts.

A spokeswoman for the Madison County State's Attorney's Office tells the Belleville News-Democrat that Griesbaum will be sentenced to simultaneous prison terms of three years and six months in prison on each count.

Authorities contend that Griesbaum was drunk in February 2010 in Madison County when his pickup truck collided head-on with a vehicle driven by Barbara Green of Trenton. She died.

Griesbaum's trial began Tuesday with jury selection and was to have gone to the jury for deliberation as early as Friday.

Griesbaum's sentencing date was not immediately set.
