EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – One Evansville family must wait longer before they can heal, after the man responsible for killing two babies in a car crash is sentenced.

Frederick McFarland was supposed to be sentenced to prison Friday for the death of Prince and Princess Carter, along with their father Terrence Barker.

McFarland appeared ready to accept a plea bargain in the case but a technical issue with the way one of the charges was filed stopped the proceedings.

The issue was reset for next month.

McFarland is accused of leading police on a car chase in 2017, running a stop sign, and hitting and killing three people in another car.

McFarland crashed into a car driven by Janae Carter at Monroe and Linwood.

Carter’s children Prince and Princess were inside the car, along with Barker.

Janae was the only survivor.
