MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee man will spend 10 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed a 3-year-old girl who was in the car.

Thirty-five-year-old Marcus Lee was sentenced Friday for the Feb. 26 crash. Lee pleaded guilty last month to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and driving on a suspended license resulting in death.

Assistant District Attorney Karl Hayes says, “Every wrong decision he could make, he made.”

The Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2aCO70e) reports Lee was drunk and high when he picked up his girlfriend’s children in an unsafe car. He failed to put in the children in seat belts, then crashed while talking on the phone and speeding.

The crash killed R’Moni N. Little-Smith. She and her 4-year-old brother were thrown from the car. The boy survived.
