PITTSBURGH — A Pennsylvania man has been convicted of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence and other charges in a deadly drunken driving crash three days before Christmas last year in Pittsburgh.

A judge revoked 22-year-old Robert Freund Jr.'s bond after the verdict Thursday and ordered him jailed pending a March 2 sentencing hearing.

The man from the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Allentown faces a mandatory three-year minimum in a state prison.

Police say Freund was speeding and had more than three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system when his vehicle crossed a concrete median and crashed into 60-year-old James Posey's Toyota Highlander on Route 51.

Posey was killed. His young daughter and two nieces were also in the vehicle. They sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
