Guilty Plea In Deadly Crash Case

A truck driver charged with murder in a deadly crash has entered a guilty plea.

Police say Paul Neto was under the influence of methamphetamines and marijuana when he crossed the center line of U.S. 421 in Franklin County, slamming into a van driven by Leslye Robertson.

She died at the scene.

Commonwealth's Attorney Larry Cleveland says Neto pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of second degree manslaughter. In exchange, he will not be allowed to ask for probation.

Prosecutors are recommending 20 years. Neto will be sentenced in October.
