Jason Jeardoe of Bennington was convicted earlier of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol in the 2014 deaths of Jason Pisocki and his daughter, Emma Jo Pisocki.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/24cInR7) Jeardoe was sentenced Friday to 16 years and three months in jail.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the collision occurred April 11, 2014, about three miles west of Bennington. A parked vehicle was partially in the westbound lane, and Jeardoe, who was driving west, moved his pickup truck into the eastbound lane to avoid it, colliding head-on with the Pisockis’ vehicle.

They died at the scene.
