A Prairieville man has been sentenced to two concurrent 28-year jail terms after pleading guilty to two counts of manslaughter.

Police say Blake Cannon Reine was being chased by an Opelousas police officer after leaving the scene of a hit-and-run accident in Opelousas, when Reine ran a red light and collided with Joseph Campbell's vehicle.

Reine's passenger Jody Reine and Campbell were killed in the crash.
