Man pleads guilty to manslaughter in crash that killed woman

Medford, Ore. — The man who led police on a high speed chase from Medford to Central Point, then hit and killed another driver changed his plea to guilty Friday.

Robert Brooks crashed into a car driven by Catherine Hein in August, before crashing into the Lil Pantry on Table Rock Road. Hein was killed in that crash.

Friday, Brooks admitted to several charges, including manslaughter. Manslaughter is a measure 11 crime which means it carries a mandatory minimum sentencing.

His sentencing is set for December 28th.
