INDICE DE GALERIAS
WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) — A 22-year-old man convicted of killing three Minnesota women in a drunken collision last year has been sentenced to just over 5½ years in prison.
A West Central Tribune report (http://bit.ly/13r8QX4 ) says 22-year-old Paul Anthony Wickenhauser of Cokato apologized to the family of the victims Friday. He says he hopes they'll find it in their hearts to forgive him.
The victims represented three generations: 68-year-old Martha Stoffers of Atwater; her 40-year-old daughter-in-law, Michelle Hoffman; and Hoffman's 8-year-old daughter, Julia.
During a plea hearing last month Wickenhauser acknowledged drinking five to six beers after work and then going home for an hour before heading to a restaurant. Authorities say Wickenhauser hit the victims' van head-on.
Wickenhauser's blood-alcohol level was 0.09 percent, just over the legal limit for driving.
