PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Warwick man has been sentenced to four years in prison followed by four years of home confinement for a drunken driving crash in North Providence that killed a passenger and injured another.

The state attorney general’s office says 23-year-old Daniel Gautreau was sentenced Thursday in Superior Court after pleading no contest to DUI death resulting and driving to endanger bodily injury resulting.

A judge ordered Gautreau to pay a $5,000 fine and undergo substance evaluation. His license will be suspended for five years after he’s released from home confinement.

Authorities say 21-year-old Dominic Guziejka was killed and Christopher Ruffe was injured when Gautreau lost control of the car and it hit a utility pole in June of last year.

Prosecutors say Gautreau’s blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
