OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Omaha man accused of being drunk when he caused a crash that fatally injured a teenage passenger remains behind bars after his bail was set at $1 million.

Television station KETV reports that bail was set during a bond hearing Wednesday for Alberto Antonio Castro-Sanabria, who is charged with motor vehicle homicide while driving drunk.

Authorities say 17-year-old Luis Alberto Castillo-Cabrera, of Omaha, died Monday from his injuries.

If convicted, Castro-Sanabria faces up to 20 years in prison. His preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 2 in Douglas County Court.
