Man sentenced in vehicular homicide conviction

LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - A state judge has sentenced a 32-year-old Walker man to 10 years in prison on a vehicular homicide conviction.

The Livingston Parish District Attorney's Office says on Wednesday that Manuel Garcia-Gallegos pleaded guilty to the charge.

Prosecutor Charlotte Herbert says Garcia-Gallegos' vehicle ran into the rear of a car in April, killing Dean Albares, of Hammond.

Herbert said Garcia-Gallegos had attempted to pass Albares' vehicle at a high rate of speed, but hit it in the rear and ran it off the road.
