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.

He arrived at the courthouse in Newmarket, Ont. shortly before 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
