Zanesville man sentenced to Nebraska prison

Written by 

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 31-year-old Muskingum County man has been sentenced to a Nebraska prison for vehicular homicide while driving drunk.

Evan Shiplett of Zanesville was given six to 10 years in prison earlier this week. He'd pleaded no contest and was convicted in March.

Police say Shiplett was driving fast when his vehicle went out of control and rolled as it left Interstate 480 in eastern Omaha on Sept. 6 last year. One of his passengers, 19-year-old Matthew Doty, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, was killed. Another passenger, 18-year-old Jacob Levene, of Neola, Iowa, left the scene but was taken to a hospital later.
