WAHOO, Neb. (AP) — A 27-year-old man convicted of vehicular homicide has been sentenced to prison after violating terms of his probation.
Court records say Myles Virgil violated probation by using or possessing alcohol or drugs in summer 2011 and again this past April. Saunders County Attorney Scott Tingelhoff says Virgil has been given four to five years in prison.
Virgil originally was given six months in jail and five years of probation after he pleaded no contest and was convicted. Prosecutors say Virgil was driving an ATV that crashed in August 2009, killing 21-year-old Brenda Strizek and injuring two other people. The crash occurred near Valparaiso in eastern Nebraska.
Police say Virgil had been drinking alcohol before the fatal crash.
