A St. Paul man accused of hitting and killing a 16-year-old girl outside of Harding Highschool rejected a plea offer Wednesday at a pretrial hearing, the Star Tribune reported.

Carlos Viveros-Colorado will be tried in front of a jury on Nov. 5 as he also waved his right to a trial by jury, the Star Tribune reported.

The plea deal offered by prosecutors would have resulted in a 29-month prison sentence for Viveros-Colorado. The accused crime is vehicular homicide of Clarisse Grime, a student of Harding High School, the Pioneer Press reported.

The 29-month plea offer is considered lighter than the typical sentence for vehicular homicide which usually calls for 41 months in prison, the Star Tribune reported.

Viveros-Colorado faces deportation if convicted, the Pioneer Press reported.
