SYRACUSE - A 17-year-old accused of driving drunk when he crashed his father's red Ferrari and killed a friend was indicted Friday for vehicular manslaughter.
An Onondaga County grand jury charged Steven Corsello with seven criminal counts, including second-degree vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and second-degree vehicular assault.
Corsello is accused of driving with a blood alcohol level of more than the legal limit of .08 percent when he crashed his father's car in June after leaving a beer party.
Matthew Angelillo was killed in the accident.
Last month, Corsello came to court expecting to plead guilty to vehicular manslaughter in exchange for a sentence of 5 years probation and 6 months in county jail.
However, those negotiations ended when Judge Anthony Aloi said he would not support a deal unless it includes a state prison sentence, emphasizing that "someone is dead."
Second-degree vehicular manslaughter is punishable by up to two-and-a-third to seven years in state prison.
