PHELPS COUNTY - A St. James man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after a crash in 2013 that killed one person, according to the Phelps County prosecutor.

Robert Garn pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and felony murder in June. The fatal accident was his third DWI charge.

In October 2013, a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper responded to a one car accident on Route CC in Rolla. Garn's car overturned several times, killing Rachel Warren who was in the passenger seat.

Blood tests showed Garn's blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.

Judge William Hickle sentenced Garn Monday to four years in prison for his third DWI, and 15 years for felony murder.
