4-year sentence for Seattle crash that killed 2

SEATTLE -- The driver responsible for a high-speed fiery crash that killed a young couple and injured a child in Seattle was sentenced Monday to four years in prison.
In a plea bargain with King County prosecutors, Daniel Habeeb admitted there was evidence to convict him of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. Habeeb also pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to a second count of vehicular homicide because he crashed in November 2011 during a seizure.
He had also blamed a mental problem for a crash in 2009 that killed a woman in Seattle.
KOMO reports prosecutors had recommended a two-year sentence, which would have allowed Habeeb to go free with credit for time served. After hearing from victim families, the judge gave the 45-year-old the maximum four-year term.
