DETROIT (AP) -

Records show a man accused of drunken driving in a crash that killed a Detroit-area girl has served time in prison for alcohol-related crimes, most recently in 2011.

Charles Cahill Jr. is expected to appear in court Wednesday on a second-degree murder charge in the death of 12-year-old Victoria Mack. Police say he crashed into a minivan last week at a stop sign in Sumpter Township, near Belleville.

Cahill has a dozen drunken-driving convictions -- many since he lost his license in 1990. In 2011, he was released from prison after three years, two years short of his maximum sentence. The Belleville man also was sent to prison in 1997.

Cahill's first drunken-driving offense was in 1986. He's being held in jail on $1 million bond.
