Megan King whose daughter Jasmine White was killed by her partner Adam Cocks in a car crash.

A man high on methamphetamine when he killed his former partner in a horror road crash north of Adelaide is to be sentenced.

Adam James Cocks is listed to come before the District Court on Thursday after pleading guilty to causing the death of Jasmine White, 29, in the crash near Kapunda in September last year.

Cocks offered a tearful apology to the court during sentencing submissions and said he didn't blame anyone for hating him.

But the dead woman's mother, Megan King, told Cocks that because of her faith, she didn't hate him.

"There are so many things that I hate now that have become part of my life," she said in a victim impact statement.

"But Adam, I don't hate you and I forgive you."
