The families of the couple who allegedly killed the unborn baby of the drunk driver, were angry because of the claim

A fatal DUI suspect’s sentencing has been set just days before the one-year anniversary of the crash.

MANSFIELD, Texas – Editor’s note: The video posted above is WFAA’s 2021 report of Scoop Jefferson speaking with the victim’s family at the scene of the crash.

A 31-year-old Texas man has learned his sentencing history in a plea he entered in connection with a drunken driving incident that killed three people.

Adan Hermosillo Garcia accepted an 18-year sentence for the fatal crash that killed Justin Dyke, 28, Alexius Ann Mills, 28, and their unborn child, Wyatt Dexter.

The accident occurred on October 16, 2021 at approximately 8:15 a.m. in the 1600 Block North SH 360 Southbound Frontage Road in Mansfield. Paramedics pronounced Dike dead at the scene. Alexius Mills and her unborn son died at the hospital. The medical examiner called Dike and Alexius Mills’ cause of death “blunt force trauma,” which led to the stillbirth of their baby.

Garcia’s sentencing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on October 10, 2022, just days before the anniversary of the fatal crash.

The victims’ families are outraged by Garcia’s plea.

Alexius’ sister, Leddy Harris, expected to find out in advance if there was any deal. Leddy Harris told WFAA that the first district attorney assigned to the case promised to keep them informed of potential appeals. The case was assigned to a new district attorney, who eventually called Leddy Harris with an update and an upcoming sentencing hearing date.

“Now I have to relive what happened just days before my sister was killed,” Leddy Harris told WFAA. “It’s also his daughter’s birthday week, which makes it a very difficult time for our family.”

The victims’ families have already prepared impact statements for the sentencing, including Leddy Harris and Alexius’ 14-year-old daughter.

Despite her emotional trauma after the accident, Leddy Harris still plans to attend the hearing and read an impact statement in court.
