NEWMARKET, Ont. - A man accused of drunk driving in a horrific crash that killed three young children and their grandfather is expected to plead guilty to multiple charges today in a Toronto-area court.
Marco Muzzo faces a dozen counts of impaired driving and six more charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle related to the Sept. 27 crash.
His high-profile lawyer Brian Greenspan has said some of the charges Muzzo faces are redundant and his client will plead guilty to "those charges that the Crown presents to the court."
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 died after the van they were in was T-boned by an SUV in Vaughan, Ont.
The children's grandmother and great-grandmother were seriously injured in the crash.
The Muzzo family, one of Canada's wealthiest, released a statement after their son's arrest saying they were "greatly saddened" by the tragedy, and expressed their "deepest sympathy" to the Neville-Lake family.
