A Fall River man accused of killing his girlfriend in a drunk driving crash is set to appear in court Tuesday morning.

Brandon Borge is expected to plead guilty to charges after being involved in an accident that took the life of 34-year-old Barbara Ellis of Attleboro two years ago. As a result of the crash Borge’s legs needed to be amputated.

Police say Borge was driving 100 miles and hour and led police on a high speed chase before crashing his car into a bridge abutment in Cranston. The car then burst into flames killing Ellis and seriously wounding Borge.
