PAW PAW — The Benton Harbor man accused of killing two people in a crash on Red Arrow Highway in January has entered a plea in the case, thus avoiding a trial.

Jose Humberto Canedo pleaded no contest last week in Van Buren County Circuit Court to one count of second-degree homicide of Mary Fender, and one count of operating with a high blood alcohol content causing serious injury with prior conviction, according to online court records.
