A man accused of impaired driving in a crash north of Toronto that claimed the lives of three children and their grandfather is in court for a hearing.
Marco Muzzo, 29, is facing several charges in connection with a crash in Vaughan, Ont., including impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
The Sept. 27 crash fatally wounded 9-year-old Daniel, 5-year-old Harrison (Harry) and 2-year-old Milagros (Milly) Neville-Lake. The children's 65-year-old grandfather Gary Neville also died as a result of the collision.
Their grandmother and great-grandmother were also injured.
Muzzo last appeared in court on Dec. 10 via video link, where he was told the hearing was put over until Jan. 6. He was told he would be required to attend Wednesday's hearing in person.
He arrived at the courthouse in Newmarket, Ont. shortly before 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
