ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 19-year-old Acoma Pueblo man has been sentenced to 20 months in prison for running over and killing a 13-month-old cousin while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Dwight T. Brown on Aug. 26, 2015 pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and he was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Albuquerque.

According to a sentencing memo submitted on behalf of Brown, he backed up a car at his aunt’s house, not knowing that his young cousin was playing behind the vehicle.
