30-year sentence in deaths of 2 Detroit kids in police chase
DETROIT – A man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a high-speed chase with police that killed two Detroit children has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison.
A 6-year-old boy and his 3-year-old sister were struck by a stolen Camaro driven by Lorenzo Harris. Three other children and a woman were injured when the car hit a porch last June.
Police pursuing Harris say his car reached an average speed of 95 mph.
Alicia Garnder says she "can never stop crying" when she thinks about her kids, Michael and Makiah Jackson. The 29-year-old Harris told a judge on Wednesday that he prays for the family. He says he wasn't prepared for the situation that led to the fatal chase.
