A Wayne County man responsible for a crash that killed a Sumpter Township girl was sentenced to 27-50 years in prison today. 

Police say Charles Cahill Jr was drunk when he slammed into the back of a vehicle stopped at Martinsville and Willis roads, in July.

Victoria Mack, 12, was badly hurt in the wreck and died several days later from her injuries.

Cahill had 12 drunk driving convictions on his record prior to the crash that killed Mack.

In November, he pleaded guilty to several charges including second degree murder.
