Iowa man gets 19 years for crash that killed 2 in Omaha

{{featured_button_text}}

OMAHA — A Nebraska judge has imprisoned an Iowa man who authorities say was driving drunk when his pickup rammed into a sports car in north Omaha, killing two other Iowa men.

Tony Kenkel, 29, of Earling, Iowa, was sentenced Monday in Omaha to 19 years. He'd pleaded no contest in June to two counts of manslaughter. Prosecutors dropped two related counts in exchange.

Police say the collision occurred Oct. 13 last year on Nebraska 36 near Glenn Cunningham Lake, when Kenkel's eastbound pickup crossed the center line and struck the oncoming car. Authorities say 21-year-olds Joseph Daniels and Thomas Greise were killed. They lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
