STEVENS POINT, Wis. — A man convicted of driving drunk and killing two central Wisconsin women will go to prison for at least seven years.
Twenty-three-year-old Timothy Saavedra was convicted of driving while intoxicated at 90 mph or more when he crashed his truck last July in Portage County. Passengers Melissa Ann Peterson-Suzda and Stephanie Eberhardt, both 21, died in the crash. A third passenger was seriously injured.
Stevens Point Journal Media (http://wrtnews.co/1jD7PYl ) says Portage County Circuit Judge Thomas Eagon also sentenced Saavedra Tuesday to five years of extended supervision following his prison time.
