A metro east man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for a 2012 drunk driving wreck that killed a passenger in another vehicle.
Twenty-five-year-old Travis King of New Douglas was sentenced Monday in Madison County. Authorities say that on Oct. 20, 2012, King drove into the back of a pickup truck at the interchange of Interstates 270 and 55 near Troy.
Sixty-two-year-old Geraldine Davis of Granite City died and her daughter was injured. Prosecutors say King's blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the state's legal limit.
