      Milton man admits to driving drunk accident that killed 14-year-old

      A 22-year-old Saratoga County man has admitted to being drunk behind the wheel when his sport utility vehicle struck and killed a teenage girl standing alongside a road last summer.

      The Saratogian reports that Gavin Staulters of Milton pleaded guilty Wednesday in Saratoga County Court to a vehicular manslaughter charge stemming from the death of 14-year-old Kari Liedel on July 7.

      The teen was hit by his vehicle as she and a friend waited for another friend along a road near her home in Milton.

      Staulters is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 30 to two to seven years in state prison.
