A man accused of driving drunk and killing an off-duty police officer on his motorcycle pleaded guilty today to manslaughter charges.
Kevin Casado, an Upper East Side apartment building doorman, admitted he "recklessly'' killed Alexander Felix, 31, around 1 a.m. on July 2, 2007, while driving a minivan drunk in Upper Manhattan.
According to AP:
Felix, riding a motorcycle on Broadway, was slammed into another car by the impact, police said after the crash. He was declared dead at the scene.
Felix was assigned to Harlem's 30th Precinct and was on the force three years.
Casado, an Upper East Side apartment building doorman, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter and second-degree vehicular manslaughter in exchange for a sentence of two to six years in prison.
