MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee area teen will spend 30 years in prison for a crash on New Year’s Day that left a New Berlin couple dead last year.

Kelly Duke was 17-years-old at the time of the crash. 

Duke's lawyer said he has no memory of the crash.

Police say he sped into an intersection while driving a stolen car and slammed into the car carrying Edwin and Jean Thaves. Both were dead at the scene.

Tests taken later on samples of his blood showed Duke had a blood-alcohol content level of .183 more than twice the legal limit for driving in Wisconsin.

Relatives of the Thaves had asked the judge to give Duke the maximum, 45 years, while the defense attorney had asked for 15.
