NEWPORT — Joshua Cole was facing a jury trial scheduled to start June 27. He’d been charged with, and pled innocent to, two charges of manslaughter, driving under the influence (DUI) with a resulting fatality, grossly negligent driving resulting in a serious injury, and grossly negligent driving resulting in a fatality.

That trial was canceled on May 18 when Judge Robert Bent accepted guilty pleas to three felonies, the two manslaughter charges and grossly negligent driving that resulted in a serious injury.
