Two men accused in a crash that killed three members of a family in Denver are expected to learn their sentences later today.

The Denver District Attorney's office says 36-year-old Lawrence Trujillo and Eric Snell will be sentenced at the same time during an afternoon hearing in district court.

Trujillo faces up to 174 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges that included vehicular homicide and child abuse resulting in death.

He entered the pleas in July, telling the court he wanted to spare the victims' family and his own family from having to go through a trial.

Snell pleaded guilty in March to one count of driving under the influence and three counts of being an accessory to a crime in a vehicular homicide case.

He faces up to 90 days in jail and two years of probation.
