A 22-year-old Auburn man has pleaded not guilty to charges he caused a car wreck that killed his passenger in February.

Brian Sicade was charged last month with second-degree murder, vehicular homicide, unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle, attempting to elude police and third-degree driving with a suspended license.

Sicade was arraigned Monday in Pierce County Superior Court.

State troopers believe Sicade was at the wheel of a stolen Chevrolet Monte Carlo that crashed Feb. 4 as the driver fled police on Interstate 5 near the Port of Tacoma Road. His passenger, 45-year-old Victor Wilson, died.

Charging papers show Sicade’s blood-alcohol level was .15 shortly after the wreck. The legal limit in Washington is .08.

Superior Court Judge Bryan Chushcoff on Monday ordered Sicade jailed in lieu of $750,000 bail.
