    DELHI, Iowa - A Delaware County man is in jail charged with vehicular homicide.

    The charge stems from an early morning crash on County Road D22 east of Earlville on December 21, 2013.

    The Iowa State Patrol says Dean Dempster, III, 23 of Delhi lost control of his pickup, and it went in the ditch and rolled. The patrol says one of his passengers, 23-year-old Brittany Honkomp of Dyersville, died in the crash.

    Investigators say Dempster had consumed several mixed drinks and beer at multiple bars before the crash.

    Dempster is being held on a half million dollar bond.
