THOMPSON FALLS - A Thompson Falls man will serve 10 years in the Montana Department of Corrections for driving drunk and killing two people in September 2012.
Lance Christopher Pavlik was sentenced for the death of Jeremiah Bennett and his fiancé, Christina Jackson.
Prosecutors say Pavlik was driving on Prospect Creek Road late at night when he crossed the centerline and collided with the other car. Bennett's two children were also injured in the crash.
Investigators say Pavlik's blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit following the wreck.
