OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- A driver who had a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit is sentenced to 17 years in prison for a crash that killed an elderly man and injured his wife in Winnebago County.
A judge Thursday also ordered 10 years of extended supervision for 58-year-old William Doemel who ran a stop sign in the town of Nekimi in December of 2012 and struck the victims' car.
Eighty-year-old Robert Zentner was killed. His wife of more than 60 years, Phyllis Zenter, was injured. The 82-year-old widow says Doemel took away the person who had been the center of her life since she was 16.
Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports (http://oshko.sh/1gfqwLu ) Doemel had a blood alcohol content of 0.28 as well as traces of marijuana in his system.
