Man Gets 12 Years In Jail In Fatal Junction Wreck

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) – A man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for a collision in Grand Junction that killed a 20-year-old woman.

Henry Stoltman, 28, was sentenced Friday in the August 2010 death of Rebekah Joy King.

He pleaded guilty in January to vehicular homicide.

He could have been sentenced to up to 24 years in prison. King’s family asked the judge for a reasonable sentence, one that wasn’t “crushing.” They say they pray for Stoltman.

Prosecutors say he would be eligible for parole within four years.
