 BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- A Butte man has been charged with felony vehicular homicide
 while under the influence after an 80-year-old pedestrian died three weeks
after being struck by a pickup truck.
   Jack Lean was charged with the more serious crime in district court Tuesday
after being initially charged with negligent vehicular assault.
   Lean is accused of hitting Thomas Kelly on March 3 as Kelly was walking in a
crosswalk. Kelly died in a hospital March 21.
   Court documents say Lean had a blood-alcohol content of .129. The legal limit
 to drive is .08.
   The Montana Standard reports Lean's arraignment on the new charge is scheduled
  for April 11.
   He is free on bond and is required to submit to daily alcohol tests as a condition
 of his release.
