WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - An Ayer man who struck and killed a brother and sister in a hit-and-run in Worcester last year has been sentenced to up to 11 years in prison.

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1reablM ) reports that 31-year-old Daniel Depew was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to charges including drunken driving and manslaughter by motor vehicle.

Prosecutors say Depew was drunk when he struck 46-year-old George Burdick and 48-year-old Gina Burdick shortly before 7 p.m. on Sept. 26. The siblings were unloading groceries outside George Burdick’s home at the time.

Gina Burdick was dragged more than 100 yards under the car and died shortly after the crash. George Burdick died at the hospital three days later.

Depew apologized in court.
