GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A federal jury has convicted a man of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of his wife and her sister in a car crash in Cheverly.

Twenty-five-year-old Charles Wiggins of Cottage City was convicted Thursday in federal court in Greenbelt.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Wiggins was driving on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in December 2013 when he rear-ended a truck near Route 222.

Wiggins’ wife, 34-year-old Kiana Wiggins, and her sister, 21-year-old Angel Barbour, who were passengers in the car, were killed. Charles Wiggins, Barbour’s boyfriend, and two people in the truck were injured.

Wiggins faces a maximum of 16 years in prison at sentencing on June 21.
