Bulgarian World Champion Ice Dancer Maxim Staviski's trial is set to begin January 30th in Sofia.
Maxim was charged in an accident that left a 23-year-old man dead and his 18-year-old female companion in a coma for nearly four months. Police said Staviski's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
In a statement to the press, Maxim stated "It is a grave tragedy. I do not want to comment. I will walk with my head down for my whole life."
Maxim along with his partner Albena Denkova won their second consecutive ice dancing title at the World Figure Skating Championships this past March in Tokyo.
