DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A Dubuque man has been sentenced to prison after he pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a car crash that killed his fiancé’s brother.

The Telegraph Herald (https://bit.ly/1RXOl2m ) reports a judge Monday sentenced 26-year-old Alexander Engling to 10 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in February to charges of vehicular homicide by reckless driving and drunken driving as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The crash occurred in April 2015.

Court documents say Engling was driving near Holy Cross when he lost control of his vehicle, which entered a ditch and overturned.

His passenger, 30-year-old John Cook, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Deputies found Engling was intoxicated while driving.
