US man charged with homicide after online confession
CHICAGO (AFP) - A young Ohio man who confessed online to killing a man while driving drunk was charged with vehicular homicide on Monday, court records show.
Matthew Cordle, 22, was also charged with driving under the influence.
"When I get charged I will plead guilty and take responsibility for everything I've done to Vincent (Canzani) and his family," Cordle said in the video posted last week on BecauseISaidIWould.com.
Cordle recounted how he "blacked out" behind the wheel after a night of "heavy drinking" then hit another vehicle in a wrong-way crash on an Interstate highway on June 22.
