Marco Muzzo will learn his sentence on Tuesday after pleading guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
The 29-year-old was driving to his home in Vaughan on September 27 when his Jeep Cherokee ran a stop sign at the intersection of Kipling Avenue and Kirby Road, crashing into a Dodge Grand Caravan.
Daniel Neville-Lake, 9, his 5-year-old brother Harrison and 2-year-old sister Milly were all killed in the crash along with their grandfather, Gary Neville. The children’s grandmother and great-grandmother were seriously injured.

Muzzo’s blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit at the time of the crash.
The Crown has called for an “unprecedented sentence”, somewhere between 10 – 12 years while Muzzo’s lawyer, Brian Greenspan, asked for a sentence of eight years less time served.
A psychiatric report filed with the court last month said Muzzo was showing signs of post-traumatic stress disorder and mild depression.
