Ex-MSU coach found guilty in crash that killed two

MONROE COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) An ex-MSU basketball strength and conditioning coach has been convicted of two felonies in connection with a July 2017 crash that killed a mother and her daughter.

A jury found Todd Moyer guilty on two counts of reckless driving causing death on Friday. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. Sentencing is set for 1:30 p.m on August 30th.

Prosecutors say Moyer was texting on his cellphone prior to the July 14, 2017 crash on U.S 23 in Monroe County that killed 35-year-old Gladys Johnson of Redford and her 5-year-old daughter, Za-Kira. After charges were filed, MSU officials suspended Moyer from his job with pay. MSU spokeswoman Emily Guerrant said Friday the University did not renew Moyer's contract when it expired on June 30th.

Moyer, of Holt, will remain free until sentencing. A judge imposed a curfew of 10 p.m to 6 a.m.
