A Loose Creek man has been placed on two years unsupervised probation after pleading guilty to an amended charge in connection with a fatal boating accident in July 2010.

As part of a plea agreement, Noland Stuecken, 34, pleaded guilty to operating a watercraft while intoxicated. He was originally charged with involuntary manslaughter for being under the influence of alcohol and causing the death of Norma Sandbothe, 82, Vienna, by colliding with a vessel she was riding in on the Osage River late on July 3, 2010.

As part of his probation, Stuecken must spend 30 days in jail, complete a victims impact panel and speak to four boating education classes.

According to the Missouri Water Patrol, the accident occurred near 4303 Riverfront Road in Lisletown.
