100-year Sentence in '06 Fatal Crash

A Cottonwood man has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for the alcohol-related traffic deaths of his wife, his son and another child.

34 year old Kenneth McDaniel was originally charged with murder.

A jury of 11 women and one man deliberated just over an hour before finding McDaniel guilty of three counts of manslaughter.

McDaniel was also convicted of second degree assault for injuries to his step-daughter.

She ended up surviving the crash.

The accident happened in June of 2006 on Highway 231, south of Dothan, when McDaniel allegedly drove his vehicle into the path of an on-coming 18-wheeler.

Prosecutors contended McDaniel was intoxicated at the time of the mishap.
