Waco man pleads guilty in connection with crash that killed two unborn babies

Jeffrey David Miller will likely be sentenced next month.

A Waco man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a June 2016 crash that killed two unborn babies.

The McLennan County District Attorney's Office said Jeffrey David Miller, 47, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault and one count of manslaughter. Miller had previously been indicted by a McLennan County Grand Jury on a second count of manslaughter, but that count was later dropped by prosecutors.

Police said Miller was driving south on 38th Street in Waco when he crashed into a utility pole, injuring two pregnant women who were passengers in his vehicle. Investigators have previously said Miller may have been under the influence of drugs and also distracted by his cell phone at the time of the crash.

Both the women survived, but they lost their babies.

A courthouse source said sentencing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on March 29.
