NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — A Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to charges in connection with a fiery 2012 southern Indiana crash that killed four people.

The News and Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1jqZLu9 ) 33-year-old Charles M. Barlow of Louisville pleaded guilty Friday to one count of causing death when operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, three counts of reckless homicide, and being a habitual offender. He's due to be sentenced Jan. 13 in Floyd Superior Court.

Court documents say Barlow was driving more than 80 mph and had been drinking before the crash on Indiana 111 near the Horseshoe Southern Indiana casino. He veered right, overcorrected and struck an oncoming car. The crash killed the other driver and the three passengers of his off-duty taxi, which burst into flames.

All of the victims were Louisville residents.
