The charge, stemming from a deadly April 24 car crash, carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.

Chris Soules, an Iowa farmer who starred on the The Bachelor two years ago, is scheduled to go on trial in January for leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

The 35-year-old Soules is accused of driving a truck that struck a farm tractor near his hometown of Aurora, Iowa, in April. Sixty-six-year-old Kenneth Moser died after his tractor rolled into a ditch.

Sheriff's reports say Soules left the scene and was arrested later at his home about 10 miles away.

Court documents posted online Friday indicate a jury trial has been set for Jan. 18. It's expected to last four to five days.

The charge carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.

Aurora is about 170 miles northeast of Des Moines.
