(KSL News) The man responsible for an accident that killed three people will not be sentenced today.

Carlos Prieto was scheduled to be sentenced today, but the judge continued the hearing for a later date. It was not clear why the sentencing was delayed.

Prieto pleaded guilty last month to automobile homicide. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed charges of drunk driving and not having a license.

Prieto crashed into the Ceran family's car last Christmas Eve, killing the mother and two of her children.

Gary Ceran, the husband and father, plans to ask the judge to have mercy on Prieto.
