A Kansas State University graduate student will spend about 2 months in jail for a head-on crash that killed two people last year.

A Riley County judge imposed the sentence today on Miles Theurer, who could have received up to 14 years in prison.

He will now face 60 days in jail plus three years’ probation.

The 24-year-old veterinary medicine student pleaded “no contest” in May to two counts of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The May 14, 2012 collision killed Michael Stanley and Elizabeth Young on Kansas 18 – two miles from Manhattan.

Prosecutors say Theurer was drunk and driving the wrong way on the highway when he ran head-on into a car young was driving.
