BATAVIA, NY (WKBW) -- Thomas Wallace, 45, of Ohio, pleaded guilty to Manslaughter 2nd Tuesday, for the accident that killed 33-year-old Julie Stratton of Amherst last December.

Stratton had been involved in an accident on Interstate 90 near Pembroke when the tractor trailer driven by Wallace struck her vehicle. Stratton died as a result of her injuries sustained in the second accident.

An investigation revealed that Wallace was operating his truck while keeping a fictitious log and while using a lap top computer to access pornographic movies while driving.

Wallace is scheduled for sentencing on September 1 at 10:00 a.m. in Genesee County Court.
