Involuntary manslaughter in fatal Umatilla crash

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 54-year-old Pendleton man who fell asleep at the wheel and crashed on the Umatilla Indian Reservation killing his estranged wife was sentenced Monday in federal court in Portland to 21 months in prison for involuntary manslaughter.

The U.S. attorney's office says Roberto Medellin admitted he had been drinking the day of the crash last May and was too tired to drive.

The Oregonian reports the crash killed Misty Dawn Sheoships.
