A Youngstown man accused of crashing a car, and killing a passenger following a police chase has plead guilty.

Jaquan Jenkins, 23, pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter, a first-degree felony and failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, a third-degree felony. 

This stems from the December 1 traffic death of 22-year-old Kaitlyn Cefalde.

Police say Cefalde was a passenger in a Cadillac being driven by Jenkins when the car went off Mahoning Avenue, striking a sign and a mailbox near the West Side Merchants office near South Bon Air Avenue.

The car, which police say had been traveling 90 miles per hour, split in half, ejecting both Cefalde and Jenkins, who were both hospitalized.  Cefalde died at the hospital.

Shortly before the crash, Austintown Police had broken off a pursuit of the Cadillac which had sped away after being pulled over by an officer.
Jenkins remained a fugitive until August when he was found hiding under a pile of laundry in a Youngstown basement.
His sentencing will be on Nov. 29 at 8:30 a.m.
