A King Township man accused in the impaired driving deaths of three siblings and their Grandfather is to plead guilty to charges laid against him.
Marco Muzzo appeared before a Superior Court justice on Wednesday afternoon, just hours after his lawyer waived the accused right to a preliminary hearing in a Newmarket courtroom with Brian Greenspan saying that there was sufficient evidence in the case to go directly to trial by Judge alone.
Greenspan said that “Marco Muzzo has accepted full responsibility and accountability for his conduct and the devastating consequences of that conduct.”
He added that both sides in the case will present an agreed statement of facts on February 4th when the guilty plea will be entered.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled to take place on February 23rd and 24th.
The 29 year old was charged with a dozen counts of impaired driving and six more charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle related to the Sept. 27 crash in Vaughan which claimed the lives of nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly, and their 65-year-old grandfather Gary Neville.
AM640 Legal Analyst Lorne Honickman discussed the case with host Mike Stafford on Wednesday afternoon before it was announced that Muzzo would plead guilty.
