Sentencing for Ohio man Matthew Cordle after confessing to fatal DUI via YouTube

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The daughter of an Ohio man killed by a drunken driver who later confessed the crime in an online video is expected to offer her first in-depth comments about the accident.

Angela Canzani's appearance Wednesday was scheduled as part of the sentencing for Matthew Cordle, who faces eight years in prison for the June accident that killed Canzani's father.

The Franklin County Prosecutor has asked Judge David Fais (fys) for the maximum, saying the 22-year-old Cordle drove despite a history of blackouts after heavy drinking.

Cordle's attorneys asked for a sentence below the maximum to send a message about the value of taking responsibility for a tragedy.

Cordle pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide and driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in 61-year-old Vincent Canzani's death.
