CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter for a wreck that killed two people in Charlotte last year.

The Charlotte Observer reported (https://bit.ly/1WnZPh0) that 24-year-old Kenneth Goggins accepted a plea deal with prosecutors Thursday. Goggins was sentenced to nearly nine years in prison.

Prosecutors say Goggins was driving a stolen vehicle last September with 17-year-old Jennifer Taggart and 22-year-old Sarah Bianca Love inside.

Police had started chasing Goggins but backed off when he sped away. Police watching from a helicopter saw Goggins lose control when a car pulled in front of him.

He crashed into a building. Goggins was wearing a seat belt. His passengers were not wearing seat belts and died.

Sabrina Taggart told Goggins on Thursday that she forgave him for her daughter’s death.
