Matthew Cordle, Ohio man, confesses in online video to driving drunk, causing deadly crash - Crimesider - CBS News
Franklin County prosecutor Ron O'Brien on Thursday said Cordle was a suspect in the deadly crash but hadn't been charged. O'Brien said he saw the video on Wednesday and downloaded a copy onto a CD as evidence. He said he'll ask a grand jury to indict Cordle for aggravated vehicular homicide with an alcohol specification, a charge that carries a maximum of eight years in prison upon conviction.
the eight years will feel easy compared to having to reconcile the murder with himself... I wish him luck he obviously fully understands the big picture.
Try and make sense of this if he had a clean record.

Matthew Cordle, of Powell, was indicted for one count aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Cordle turned himself in at the Franklin County Jail at about 12:30 p.m. Monday.
Cordle is accused of driving the wrong way on Interstate 670 near 3rd Street on June 22, 2013 at about 2:45 a.m.
Cordle crashed head on into a vehicle driven by 61-year-old Vincent Canzani, who died after the crash.
The indictment alleges that Cordle had a blood alcohol level of .191 at the time of the crash.
Last week Cordle confessed in a video posted online that he was to blame for the wrong way crash that occurred after he had spent the night drinking.
