Yakima man charged after daughter dies in car crash

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A possible life sentence for a Yakima man blamed for the car accident that killed his baby daughter. He's charged with vehicular homicide.

Heriberto Rodriguez Acosta made a preliminary appearance today. Prosecutors say he was drunk and high on methamphetamine when he slammed into a tree near Buena this summer.

His one-year old daughter died at the scene. Acosta is also charged with driving with a revoked or suspended license. He could get life if he's convicted.
