Manchester City starlet Courtney Meppen-Walter broke down in court following his 16-month jail sentence on the charges of killing an Indian brother and sister in a high-speed car crash.

Kulwant Singh and his sister Ravel Kaur were killed when their Nissan Micra was smashed into a wall by Meppen-Walter's Mercedes, which was being driven much over the speed limit on a 30 miles per hour (mph) zone, The Mirror reports.

The United starlet, who had played for the England under-17 team, has admitted his guilt on causing death by careless driving, for which he was banned from driving for three years by Judge Martin Steiger, along with his jail sentence.

Judge Steiger also ordered that Meppen-Walter's Mercedes be sold and the proceeds be distributed among Kaur's injured teenaged sons Amjit and Harveen, who were also in the car at the time of the crash and had suffered serious head injuries.

The Blackley, Manchester player had a previous conviction for driving at 56 mph in a 30 mph zone, for which he received six penalty points and was fined 75 pounds, the report added. (ANI)
