It was an agonizing day for the Neville-Lake family as fourteen victim impact statements were read at the sentencing hearing of Marco Muzzo.
Muzzo pleaded guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing the death of three young siblings and their grandfather in Vaughan last September.
Nine year old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five year old brother Harrison, and two year old sister Milly were killed along with 65 year old Gary Neville when Muzzo’s SUV crashed into their minivan on a stretch of road in Vaughan, September 27th. Muzzo’s blood alcohol limit was found to be more than double the legal limit following the crash.
“I don’t have anyone left to call me mom. You killed all my babies,” said Jennifer Neville-Lake during the hearing. “I miss my kids, I miss my dad, I want my old life back.”
Neville-Lake went on to say that her home is now eerily quiet without the laughter of her children. Her husband, Edward Neville-Lake, eluded to suffering from suicidal thoughts and intense anxiety since the loss.
Even the Mayor of Brampton, Linda Jeffries, weighed in. She said after the accident “we all hugged our children a little bit tighter.”
The sentencing hearing continues on Wednesday with the possibility of Muzzo himself making a statement, but his legal team did not confirm that on Tuesday.
