LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A central Kentucky man has accepted a plea agreement that was offered by a prosecutor after new evidence surfaced in the death of the man’s infant.

WKLY-TV in Louisville reports that Justin Smith of Radcliff pleaded guilty this week to reckless homicide.

Smith’s daughter Kammryn was 5 months old when she died in April 2007. She was thrown out of Smith’s car when it ran off a road, struck a utility pole and rolled several times.

Witnesses told police Smith was driving about 90 miles per hour, but Smith insisted he was going just 35 mph.

Smith’s attorney, Wes Durham, says his client may have suffered a seizure when the accident happened. Durham says Smith’s doctor confirmed a history of seizures and signed an affidavit stating it was possible for Smith to have a seizure and not know it.
