Man loses probation, gets 2-3 years in prison for crash death of Columbus woman


COLUMBUS, Nebraska — Probation has been revoked for a 32-year-old man convicted of vehicular homicide in the crash death of a Columbus woman.

The Columbus Telegram reports ( ) that Brian Browning was sentenced last week to two to three years in prison.

Judge Robert Steinke said in court that Browning, who now lives in Wolbach, began taking terms of his original sentence seriously only when prosecutors sought to revoke his four-year probation. In mid-March Brown admitted failing to report for drug testing, not participating in substance abuse counseling, not completing any community service and driving under suspension.

Authorities say Browning was speeding and driving recklessly on July 21, 2012, when he lost control of his pickup and it rolled, ejecting Browning, another passenger and 20-year-old Toni Krumland, who died days later.
