Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - The man responsible for the death of the son of Gophers Hockey Coach Bob Motzko and another person has been sentenced to 90 months in prison.

The 7-1/2 year prison term was handed down today by a Hennepin County Judge in the case of 52-year-old James Blue. The Orono man last month entered guilty pleas to criminal vehicular homicide charges for driving at a high rate of speed while intoxicated and causing a crash that claimed the lives of 20-year-old Mark Motzko and 24-year-old Sam Shuneman. Blue was also critically injured in the crash last July.

The criminal complaint alleged Blue had been drinking at a party at his home before driving away in the car with the two passengers at speeds approaching 100 mph before the wreck. The court document says a sample taken from Blue after he was transported to a hospital was tested and put his blood-alcohol-concentration at .175. It was also alleged he had consumed THC "gummies" at his home before the crash.

The sentence ordered by the judge today matches the punishment recommended under the plea agreement.
