BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A Louisville man who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and child abuse charges after a crash that killed a young mother has been sentenced to three years in prison.
The Camera newspaper reports 24-year-old Corey Lee Smith apologized during his sentencing hearing Friday in Boulder.
Police say that on the night of Sept. 18, Smith veered into the path of 22-year-old Jennefer Treasure as both drove on the same road. Prosecutors say Smith has a history of bad driving, speeding and driving dangerously.
Family members told the Camera that Smith's two children were in Treasure's car at the time, and Treasure was the mother of one of them.
The children were not seriously injured.
