    A St. Albans teenager has changed his plea to guilty in a fiery drunken driving crash that killed his passenger.

    Seventeen-year-old James Companion pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of driving under the influence with death resulting. Twenty-year-old Tasha Maring of Colchester was killed when the car crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames last May.

    Police had said that Companion has never held a Vermont's driver's license or learner's permit.

    The plea deal means that the prosecution can request that he serve up to three years in prison and the defense can argue for a 2-3-year sentence.
