Man gets 15 years for DUI crash that killed 2 nuns
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for an alcohol-related crash that left two nuns dead and a third nun injured.
A judge in Florida's Lee County sentenced 62-year-old Michael Hickman on Monday after he pleaded guilty to two DUI manslaughter counts.
Authorities say the three nuns were heading back to Cape Coral from a conference in Cocoa Beach in September 2009 when Hickman's vehicle turned into their path at an intersection. Two of the women — 80-year-old Karinne O'Malley and 84-year-old Ann McFall — were killed in the collision in North Fort Myers.
A third nun, 67-year-old Elizabeth Meegan, was injured.
