CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ Two men have been sentenced in Charlotte for drunken driving deaths.
The Charlotte Observer reported that 66-year-old James Nash was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of supervised probation on Thursday. The sentence will allow Nash to care for his elderly mother.
Police say Nash struck and killed Michael Dennis Case in December. Nash's alcohol level was .13. The legal limit in North Carolina is .08.
In a separate case, Jacob Kost of Winston-Salem was sentenced to between 6 years and 8 years in prison.
Kost was charged in the 2012 death of Kevin Andrew Sweet.
Police say Kost struck and killed Sweet after an argument that followed a chase involving two trucks.

Kost promised to counsel prison inmates on the dangers of alcohol and drugs.
