Nashua man pleads guilty in crash that killed teen son

The Associated Press

NASHUA— A 39-year-old man has pleaded guilty in a crash that killed his 14-year-old son in N.H.

Nghia Huynh pleaded guilty Wednesday to negligent homicide. He's been behind bars since his arrest following the February 2014 rollover crash in which his car flipped over the center barrier on the Everett Turnpike in Merrimack.

His son, Kobe Huynh, was battling a life-threatening illness at the time and died from injuries in the wreck.

Prosecutors say they're recommending he serve up to seven years behind bars when he's sentenced on Dec. 2. They dropped an aggravated DWI charge in the agreement.

Authorities say he could face more time in prison in an unrelated case being handled by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
