Minnesota driver distracted by sex pleads guilty in fatal crash

Posted: Updated:

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Prosecutors in southern Minnesota are recommending four years in prison for a man who has pleaded guilty to charges in a car crash that killed two women, including one who witnesses say he was having sex with while driving.

Mark Anders Chalin told Blue Earth District Court Judge Bradley Walker Monday he doesn't remember anything about what led to last year's crash that killed Amber Menezes, 23, of Mankato, and Jonna Martin, 35, of Lakeville.

Witnesses told investigators Menezes was straddling Chalin while he was driving on County Road 90 and blocking his view of the road. Chalin's car slammed headon into Martin's vehicle.

Chalin, 24, pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide.
