OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - An Overland Park teenager has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed a man and injured a woman.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1MgtNMd ) reports that 18-year-old Conner Estrella received the 66-month sentence Thursday. He previously pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for the August 2014 death of 52-year-old Kevin Patrick Moroney. He also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery for injuring a woman standing with Moroney next to a parked vehicle.

Moroney’s 32-year-old son, Brent Moroney, says he hopes the sentence is “severe enough to send a message to other people.”

Before sentencing, Estrella apologized. He says what happened “hurts me every day.”

Estrella is also liable for more than $33,000 in restitution.
