FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick man is starting a four-year prison term for the drunken-driving death of his friend.
Jose Izaguirre Calderon, 23, was sentenced Tuesday in Frederick County Circuit Court.
He pleaded guilty June 1 to vehicular homicide. At the plea hearing, he acknowledged driving under the influence of alcohol when his Honda Civic veered off of Mount Tabor Road near Myersville in August.
Two passengers were thrown from the car. One of them, Roberto Monarca, 42, was killed.
Izaguirre Calderon was on probation stemming from an earlier drunken-driving charge at the time of the crash.
