Elko, Nev. • A 24-year-old Utah man convicted of drunken driving in a 2010 crash that killed his brother on U.S. Highway 93 in Nevada has been sentenced to the maximum 12 years in prison.

Kevin Naranjo, of Ibapah, had a .134 percent blood-alcohol level and marijuana in his system when his older brother, Alex, was killed in the crash 20 miles south of West Wendover.

His father is Ed Naranjo, chairman of the 500-member Confederated Tribes of the Goshute. He appealed to District Judge Nancy Porter for leniency during Monday’s sentencing, saying his son had suffered enough by his brother’s death.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports prosecutors didn’t object to a prison term of five years, but Porter cited a second DUI arrest since the crash in justifying the maximum.
