MIDLAND - A man who plowed into a Midland family killing a young mother and injuring three others last July will go to prison for 20 years.

Carlos Manuel Baeza pleaded guilty to five charges, including intoxication manslaughter, stemming from the July hit-and-run on south Baird Street.

Baeza's red pick-up slammed into 22-year-old Ashley Molina, 26-year-old Attamia Romero, and a stroller carrying infants Anthony Sanchez and Yuliana Romero.

The other victims were injured, but have recovered from their injuries.
