SEATTLE (AP) — King County prosecutors are reviewing the plea deal they reached with a man after a fatal crash in 2009 in Seattle because the same man is blamed for a crash Sunday that killed two more people.

The Seattle Times reports (http://bit.ly/s7JbQo) the revocation of the plea deal could send 43-year-old Daniel Ray Habeeb to jail for a year.

Habeeb and two girls in his SUV were injured in Sunday’s crash that killed Laura Sheard and her boyfriend Kristopher Martin. The 26-year-old Sheard was a University of Washington graduate student. The 33-year-old Martin was a musician.

Habeeb was charged with vehicular homicide after the 2009 crash that killed 65-year-old Susan Peek.

Deputy Prosecutor Mark Larson says Habeeb was allowed to plead guilty to lesser charges because of evidence he was psychotic.
