Guilty Plea in Fatal Wreck
A western Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from a wreck that killed two of his passengers.
Michael Williams faces twelve years in prison at his sentencing Aug. 7.
The Mayfield native pleaded guilty Monday in Marshall Circuit Court to two counts of second-degree manslaughter, first-degree wanton endangerment, second-offense DUI and driving on a revoked driver's license.
The September crash along a Marshall County road killed Kaytlin Lamb and Michael Hoy Jr. and injured a third passenger.
Williams told an officer at the scene of the crash that he had consumed five or six beers and a mixed drink and smoked marijuana that night. The car he was driving hit a utility pole on its side after it left the road.
