SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to five to 12 years in prison in a drunken-driving crash that killed a 12-year-old boy on his way to get ice cream with his father last summer.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1yWvrKI ) reports that 45-year-old David Turano of Carbondale was sentenced Wednesday in Lackawanna County Court.

Zupon pleaded guilty last month to homicide by motor vehicle and aggravated assault while driving under the influence in the August crash in Old Forge that killed Leonard Zupon Jr.

The shackled defendant repeatedly bent over with emotion as relatives tearfully spoke of their loss. He later apologized quietly and profusely to the family.
