Del. Man Gets 5 Years in Fatal 2-Vehicle Crash


WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A Middletown man who prosecutors say was driving up to 90 mph before he crashed into an oncoming vehicle has been sentenced to 5 years in prison for manslaughter and assault.

Twenty-year-old Markese Marshall-Horsey apologized repeatedly in court Friday to the parents of 17-year-old Andre K. Smith, who died in the fiery crash last year in Wilmington.

Prosecutors say Marshall-Horsey was angry that he had gotten a traffic ticket earlier on April 12, 2012. Authorities say he was speeding when he lost control of his SUV and crashed into the vehicle in which Smith was a passenger.
