A man was found guilty of third-degree murder in a crash that killed a 9-year-old girl and paralyzed her grandmother in November.
After two days of testimony, a Bucks County judge Thursday announced the verdict against Drew Bodden, 38, of Plumstead.
Prosecutors allege that Bodden was racing another car at between 142 mph and 155 mph when his modified Mustang Cobra rear-ended an SUV on Route 611 in Doylestown on Nov. 21, pushing the bumper inside the car and killing fourth-grader Holly Huynh in the back seat.

Her grandmother, Suzanne Berry, suffered massive injuries and was left paralyzed.
Bodden faces a maximum 40 years behind bars, although the guidelines call for six to 20 years.
His driving privileges were taken away as part of his bail, reported PhillyBurbs.com.
Bodden’s lawyer Colin Jenei said his client is sorry.
“He’s very remorseful about what he did that night and the effect it’s had on that family,” Jenei told PhillyBurbs.com.
