MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man will spend five years in prison for killing a passenger and injuring another while driving drunk.

25-year-old Christopher Allen must also spend 4 years under extended supervision once he’s no longer behind bars.

Prosecutors said Allen drove his car into a tree in February. Aaron Calvin was killed, and another passenger survived injuries that included a broken hip.

Allen’s blood alcohol level was 0.12, about one-and-a-half times the legal limit.

He pleaded no contest earlier to felony charges of causing death and injury by drunk driving. Three other counts were dropped in a plea bargain.
