Sentencing set in fatal crash after Phils game

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A South Philadelphia man will be sentenced for striking two Missouri women with his car, killing one, after a Phillies game in 2008.

Twenty-year-old Joseph Genovese faces a maximum of 13 1/2 to 27 years in prison when he is sentenced Tuesday in the crash that killed a St. Louis teacher and seriously injured another.

Authorities said Genovese ran a red light while intoxicated and struck Cindy Grassi and Sandra Wacker outside a Phillies-Cardinals game at Citizens Bank Park in July 2008. Fifty-3-year-old Grassi died and Wacker was badly injured.

Genovese pleaded guilty in February to homicide by vehicle, homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence and aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence.
