GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) - A Spartanburg man stopped for speeding just hours before a crash that killed his 2-year-old daughter pleaded guilty to reckless homicide.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg (https://bit.ly/1PLCwen ) reports a judge sentenced 27-year-old Curtis Gray McCraw Tuesday to a 10-year sentence, suspended upon the service of seven years and five years of probation.

Officials say McCraw’s daughter, Sadie, was in a booster seat when he crashed last November. Solicitor Barry Barnette told Kelly that Sadie McCraw’s skull was fractured in the crash, and she died from blunt force trauma.

Barnette says McCraw was driving at a high rate of speed when he ran off the road, struck a traffic sign and hit a tree. McCraw had been stopped earlier for driving 83 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone.
