A Moberly man who pleaded guilty to killing a pregnant woman and her unborn child in an April 6 Randolph County crash was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday.

Steven Garrett, 47, pleaded guilty on Sept. 15 to DWI causing the death of two or more. He was initially charged with two counts of second-degree murder, armed-criminal action and four counts of driving while intoxicated (including death of two, causing serious physical injury, causing physical injury and aggravated DWI). 

Maya Stilwell, of Moberly, was killed in the head-on collision, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report. She was 22. Stilwell was about six or seven months pregnant, according to the probable cause statement. Stilwell's fiancé Conar Maylee and 2-year-old daughter Delilah Stilwell-Maylee were injured in the crash.

Garrett’s case was moved to Carroll County in June.
