TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A Topeka man who was driving about 100 mph when he hit and killed a motorcyclist and fled the scene has pleaded guilty to two felonies.

Thirty-one-year-old David Michael Bowers pleaded guilty Wednesday to reckless involuntary manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident in the October 2014 death of 53-year-old Michael Munoz of Topeka.

In exchange for the plea, five other charges, including driving under the influence, were dropped.

Bowers will be sentenced June 5.
