BOZEMAN - A Bozeman teen has pleaded guilty to a felony charge stemming from the death of his friend after a high-speed car crash in 2016.

Jacob Burroughs, 19, appeared in Gallatin County District Court on Friday and entered a plea of guilty to negligent homicide for the death of 17-year-old Joseph Carnefix.

The crash occurred on Sept. 1, 2016 on East Main Street near the I-90 overpass in Bozeman.

According to court documents, Burroughs told police he was driving more than 100 mph when the wreck happened, killing one of his three passengers.

Following his arrest in 2016, Burroughs was accused multiple times of violating his bond conditions by consuming alcohol and drugs.

His sentencing hearing was scheduled for March 14.
