NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man has pleaded guilty for driving drunk and killing another man in 2010.
Charles Lavin Shepherd, 56, accepted a 10-year prison sentence in District Judge Ed Klein's court.
According to a previous report, the March wreck occurred on the intersection of East Main Street and Greer Street.
Preliminary investigation has revealed that a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass, driven by Shepherd, was westbound in the 1800 block of East Main Street and turned left onto Greer Street into the path of a 1997 Ford Explorer, driven by Danielle McFarland, age 34, of Nacogdoches.
A passenger in the Oldsmobile, Lonnie J. Nobles, age 64 of Nacogdoches, was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital.
Both drivers and a passenger in the Ford Explorer, Sadie Gray, age 80, of Nacogdoches were transported to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
A justice of the peace ordered a blood test for Shepherd, which came back positive for alcohol several months later. Nacogdoches Police arrested Shepherd on an indictment for intoxicated manslaughter in February.
