Driver Gets Life For Suicide Attempt That Killed Another
A Brooklyn man was sentenced to life in prison for his 2016 suicide attempt that resulted instead in him killing a 20-year-old college student. Mark Rafter, 50, had been driving at high speeds the wrong way down Interstate 480 when he struck and killed another driver, Kayla FCoates. Cleveland.com reports Coates' mother, Julie, told the court that Rafter should be made to view Kayla's photograph every anniversary of her daughter's death. An earlier report had misidentified Kayla Coates as Julie.
