MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A former Kansas State University student who drove drunk and killed two people in a head-on collision has been resentenced.

KMAN reports (https://bit.ly/1VtATBk ) Miles Theurer was sentenced Monday to concurrent sentences of three years and five months on two counts of involuntary manslaughter, followed by three years’ probation.

Police say Theurer was driving the wrong way in May 2012 on Kansas 18 while returning to Manhattan after a night of drinking in Junction City. His truck hit another car, killing its occupants, 31-year-old Elizabeth Young and 30-year-old Michael Stanley.

Theurer was originally sentenced to 60 days in jail followed by probation and house arrest. The state appealed and a Kansas appeals court in November ordered a resentencing, saying the judge relied on incorrect legal standards in imposing the lighter sentence.
