CHILTON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for killing two Michigan motorcyclists n 2012.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1gR0eEU) reports 27-year-old Clinton Lovelace of Hilbert also was sentenced Thursday to 15 years extended supervision and seven years probation.

Prosecutors say Lovelace was under the influence of drugs when he crossed the center line, hitting a group of 10 motorcyclists. Daniel Lee Winsemius (win-SEEM’-ee-uhs) of Twin Lake, Mich., and Doug Yonkers, of Muskegon, Mich., were killed. Eight others were injured.

Under a plea deal, Lovelace pleaded no contest in September to charges of killing someone by negligent operation of a vehicle. He also made an Alford plea to separate reckless injury charges, meaning he did not admit he was guilty, but did agree prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.
