DALLAS (AP) - A driver blamed for a 90 mph DWI wreck in Dallas
that led to the deaths of a Houston couple and their baby has been
sentenced to 40 years in prison.

A jury convicted 24-year-old Armando Soto on two counts of
intoxication manslaughter in last September's accident. A judge
Wednesday ordered Soto, who was sentenced to 20 years on each
count, to serve the prison terms consecutively.

Soto was tried over the deaths of 32-year-old Tuong Le and
7-month-old Tri "Ethan" Khuu. Both died at the scene. Officials
say 52-year-Kenny Khuu ended up in a coma and died eight months
later.

The Dallas Morning News reports Soto's blood alcohol level was
more than twice the legal limit when he drove his speeding vehicle
into the rear of the family's vehicle.
