Man gets 5 years for fatal drunken crash

Posted: Updated:

FOND DU LAC (AP) --  A Campbellsport man has been sentenced to five years in prison after his conviction in a drunken collision that killed two people.

Action Reporter Media reports 25-year-old Daniel Shea issued a tearful apology before he was sentenced Friday.

He told the victims' relatives and friends he won't ever be able to say sorry enough.  He says he doesn't expect them to forgive him and he doesn't think he'll ever forgive himself.

Shea pleaded guilty to two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.  He told investigators he'd had about nine drinks in a five-hour period in 2012.  He says he was probably texting before the crash.

Paul and Joanna Grahl were killed.  Their daughter was seriously injured.
