William Lionel Edmund Byron Fogarty was driving a car that collided with another vehicle on Highway 4 in Antigonish County in November 2011. The two teens in the other car, Kory Mattie and Nicholas (Nico) Landry, died.

A judge will deliver his verdict July 10 on whether to convict 30-year-old Fogarty on charges of dangerous and impaired driving causing death.

The crown alleges the accused's Crown Victoria crossed the centre line of a two-lane road because Fogarty was impaired by a combination of Valium and methadone found in his bloodstream.

Mattie was driving a Mustang when Fogarty crashed head-on with the two teens on a clear November afternoon.

Fogerty did not testify and remains free on bail.

The maximum sentence for impaired driving causing death is life. The maximum sentence for dangerous driving causing death is 14 years.
