ASSOCIATED PRESS

NORWALK — A man who was driving drunk when he caused a fiery crash that killed a 36-year-old woman last year has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in northern Ohio.

Twenty-four-year-old Morgan Jevec of Massillon was sentenced this week for the September crash that killed Tracy Albright of Bellevue.

Jevec pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular assault and other charges as part of the plea agreement.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge James Conway also ordered him to pay $1.3 million in medical bills for the three passengers in his car who were injured. Jevec received a lifetime driver’s license suspension.

Prosecutors said Jevec’s blood alcohol content was 0.136 percent at the time of the crash. The legal limit in Ohio is 0.08 percent.
