East Texas Man Sentenced On Intoxication Manslaughter Charges

An East Texas man is sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing a woman in a drunk driving accident.

36-year-old Aurelio Lopez-Nunez pleaded guilty Monday to one count of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault. 

In January, Nunez ran a stop light on Highway 149 and hit a car. 19-year-old Karmen Bayless died. A passenger in Bayless' car, Jason Swim, was injured. Nunez also received an additional 10 year sentence for Swim's injuries.
