NEWMARKET, Ont. - A drunk driver who killed three children and their grandfather is expected to address an Ontario court today as his sentencing hearing resumes.
Marco Muzzo has not spoken publicly about the crash last Sept. 27, though his family issued a statement expressing their regrets and condolences.
Muzzo, 29, pleaded guilty earlier this month to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly, and the children's 65-year-old grandfather, Gary Neville, died after the van they were in was hit by an SUV in Vaughan, Ont.
The children's grandmother and great-grandmother were also seriously injured in the crash.
Their mother, Jennifer Neville-Lake, looked directly at Muzzo on Tuesday as she said his actions have shattered her world.
"I don't have anyone left to call me mom .... You killed all my babies," she said in a long and emotional speech before a packed courtroom. "I miss my kids, I miss my dad, I want my old life back."
"I would not wish this horror I am living on anyone but you," she said. "You deserve to know exactly what it feels like to have every single child you created meet someone like you."
