Man Pleads Guilty in Double Fatality Crash

OSKALOOSA, Kan. (AP) A 32-year-old northeast Kansas man has pleaded guilty in Jefferson County District Court to two counts of involuntary manslaughter for an accident that killed two people in March.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Brian Keefe also pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of driving under the influence.

Keefe’s vehicle crossed the center line, causing a two-vehicle crash that killed two people in the other car, 38-year-old Shawn Fraker of Winchester and 27-year-old Daniel Shawn Walker of Oskaloosa.

Keefe was out on bond for the March crash when he was arrested again for drunken driving in August.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 10. Jefferson County Attorney Jason Belveal says Keefe is likely to serve a sentence of 38 to 86 months.
