DECATUR, Ill. (AP) - A Cook County man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in the drunk-driving death of a 20-year-old woman who was riding in his car when he crashed into a tree.

The (Decatur) Herald and Review (bit.ly/2756XCj ) reports that James Comp of Willmette was sentenced Thursday in Macon County after pleading guilty to aggravated DUI in February.

Comp was driving on a revoked license and had a blood-alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit when he lost control of his speeding Pontiac Firebird on a wet road in July 2014, killing Sara J. Barnett.

Authorities say Comp also had cocaine and other drugs in his system. He was sentenced to an additional year in prison, to be served consecutively, for another aggravated DUI conviction in a February 2014 case.
