An Easton man is heading to trial on charges he hit and killed a man with his car while driving drunk.

Francis Roscioli waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday on homicide by vehicle, DUI and other charges.

Roscioli struck Abraham Rivera on Lehigh Drive in August before losing control and crashing his car, police said.

Rivera died at the scene. Roscioli suffered minor injuries.
