WINFIELD, Kan. - 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.
Kyndal Orange, 24, 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. TiOnna Rachelle Bruno, 26, also of Arkansas City, was riding with Orange. She died after being thrown from the vehicle.
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.
