ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Dulce man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for involuntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Isaiah Dean Trujillo also was sentenced Thursday to three years of supervised release.

Trujillo was arrested in the case last May.

Authorities say two women died from injuries sustained during the rollover crash and two other passengers were hurt within the Jicarilla Apache Nation on April 24, 2013.

Prosecutors say Trujillo was the driver of the vehicle and was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

In his plea agreement, Trujillo admitted to driving more than 70 mph on a road with a 35-mph speed limit after drinking a large amount of alcohol.

Trujillo pleaded guilty to two involuntary manslaughter charges last March.
