Warwick man takes plea in fatal crash

A Warwick man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in a drugged-driving crash that killed a woman.



The Orange County District Attorney's Office says David Schermerhorn admitted to taking prescription anti-anxiety drugs before he crashed his car into a tree back in October 2014.



His passenger, 25-year-old Catilin Feldner, of Warwick, was killed in the crash.



Schermerhorn could face up to 12 years in prison when he is sentenced.
