GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A Grand Junction man has changed his plea to guilty in a deadly crash that killed a young woman and her infant daughter and injured her husband.

Twenty–year-old Derrick Maxfield had entered a not guilty plea but changed that in court Monday.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide in the death of Shandi Boetel and her daughter Natalia, child abuse resulting in death and DUI.

Police say Maxfield had been playing drinking games and taking shots before he got in the car and crashed into Boetel’s truck on North Avenue in late January.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced in early January 2010.
