PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - A Pueblo man accused of crashing his vehicle into a home, killing his 6-year-old niece has three prior DUI convictions dating back to 2003.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/1DWpfcC ) 34-year-old Daniel Case was arrested Friday on suspicion of vehicular homicide, DUI and reckless driving after authorities say he drove through the front door of his brother’s home, striking his niece.

The girl, Alexis Case, died at a hospital.

According to court records, Daniel Case pleaded guilty to three DUIs that happened in 2003, 2005 and 2007. Calls to the Pueblo County jail to see if he has hired an attorney went unanswered Tuesday night.

Investigators say Case told them he put his vehicle in park to get out and talk to his brother, and he would never do anything to hurt his niece.
