A drunk driver who killed three children and their grandfather in a horrific crash in Vaughan last September is set to be sentenced today in a Newmarket court.
29 year old Marco Muzzo pleaded guilty last month to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
Prosecutors are asking for a sentence of ten to twelve years in prison and a ban on driving for eight to ten.
Muzzo’s lawyers have argued an eight-year sentence would be enough, with credit for the four months he has already spent in custody.
Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly and the children’s 65-year-old grandfather, Gary Neville, died after the van they were in was hit in the intersection of Kipling and Kirby by a speeding Muzzo, who was driving an SUV.
MADD Canada CEO Andrew Murie will offer his thoughts on the sentencing on Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back, today with Jane Brown in for Libby Znaimer after the noon news.
