Jeffrey Eggeling has been officially charged with motor vehicle homicide in the death of the 14-year-old cousin of “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland.
According to the Douglas County Attorney in Nebraska, Eggeling was charged with three felonies — motor vehicle homicide with a DUI prior conviction, DUI causing serious bodily injury, and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident resulting in death.
The homicide charge carries a maximum sentence of 50 years behind bars.
As The Blast previously reported, Sarah Hyland wished Eggeling would “rot in hell” after crashing into a car driven by her uncle and cousin. The “Modern Family” star’s uncle was seriously injured, but expected to survive.
Hyland’s cousin was ejected from the vehicle and later died due to his injuries.
