A Monroe County man is sentenced to 10 years in prison for causing a fatal car crash in 2017, killing his passenger.
Yancy Dieter of Warrens was sentenced Wednesday in Sparta for reckless homicide, drunk driving, and other criminal counts.
A jury convicted the 48-year-old Dieter in February, finding him responsible for a rollover crash that killed 70-year-old Keith Nelson of Warrens.
Police say Dieter had been going about 120 miles an hour before the accident.
He’s also sentenced to 12 years on extended supervision after prison.
