KAIR-AM reports that Brian Keefe, of Nortonville, was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County District Court.

Keefe pleaded guilty in December to two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said a car driven by Keefe crossed the center line of a road north of Oskaloosa and struck another vehicle on March 29, 2011. The crash killed 38-year-old Shawn Fraker, of Winchester, and 27-year-old Daniel Walker, of Oskaloosa.

Keefe was sentenced to three years and seven months on each of the manslaughter counts, to run concurrently. He’ll also spend three years on post-release supervision.

    He needs to be given training so he can be given a job when he gets out.

  • Sad

    A hand full of years for ending two lives. Got to love the Kansas attitude on drinking and driving.
