  • Drunken driver gets 3 years in prison for double-fatal crash

    Billings, Montana (AP)

    A 20-year-old Hardin man who pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter for a crash that killed his sister and his fiancee was sentenced to three years in prison.

    Travis Martin, who was driving drunk, pleaded guilty in October for the March 8, 2006, deaths of his sister, Hannah Martin, 16, and his fiancee, Tracy D. Cedar, 26, both of Hardin. Four other children, ages 4 through 15, also were in the vehicle. The group was traveling home from the funeral of Thomas Glenn, of Wyola, who had died from injuries suffered in a vehicle crash.
