EVERETT, Wash. - A Snohomish County man will learn Monday whether he will go to prison for a deadly crash that killed a Granite Falls special education teacher.

Matthew Boitano pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide after he admitted to speeding and slamming into Suzy Armstrongs' car.

Armstrong was driving around a curve in September, 2011, when Boitano's car crossed the road and hit her. She died three days later.

Boitano, 22, faces up to 20 months in prison, but he could end up walking free if he is granted a first-time offender waiver.
