An 83-year-old Omaha man has plead guilty to a misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide charge in a crash that left a motorcyclist dead. On Thursday, the judge handed down his sentence.

Hugh Williams was charged with one count of motor vehicle homicide in the crash that killed 26-year-old Preston Turner back in May.

Turner was northbound on 204th Street and Williams allegedly turned in front of him. Turner was unable to avoid hitting Williams' Lexus and died at the scene.

Williams plead guilty to the charged and will be on probation for 2 years. During that time, he will not be allowed to operate a motor vehicle. In addition to that, he will serve one day in jail on the anniversary of the crash for the next two years.
