Duluth man pleads guilty to criminal vehicular homicide following fatal Denfeld crash

DULUTH, MN– A Duluth man has changed his plea to guilty after hitting and killing a motorcyclist while he was allegedly drinking and driving in the Denfeld neighborhood in May.

Stanley Brown pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide and refusing to submit to a breath test in connection to a crash which left Peter Seppanen dead. Brown had originally pleaded not guilty to those charges in June.

Police say Seppanen was driving up 40th Avenue West on a motorcycle near Horseshoe Bend.

According to court documents, Brown was apparently driving down the hill.

Witnesses say Brown crossed over the center line, hit the motorcycle and apparently kept driving.

Brown is scheduled to be sentenced in December.
