WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) _ A south-central Kansas man has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for a drunken-driving crash last year that killed his girlfriend.
Twenty-four-year-old Kyndal Orange, of Arkansas City, was convicted last month of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving without a license. He was charged after an SUV he was driving flipped over several times along a Cowley County highway in March 2011.
Twenty-six-year-old TiOnna Rachelle Bruno, also of Arkansas City, was riding with Orange. She died after being thrown from the vehicle.
KAKE-TV reports Orange was sentenced Monday to 71 months in prison plus three years of post-release supervision. He'll receive credit for the roughly 15 months he's already spent in custody.
