Woman given 15 years for manslaughter

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A member of a prominent Oklahoma family has been ordered to spend 15-years in prison.

An Oklahoma County judge gave Joffa Kerr a 15-year prison sentence today.

Kerr is the granddaughter of the late Robert S- Kerr, a former U-S senator and co-founder of the Kerr-McGee oil empire.

She pleaded no contest to two counts of first-degree manslaughter stemming from a drunken driving case.

Prosecutors say her blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit when her vehicle collided head-on with a van.

Sixty-five-year-old Phillip Lopez and his 12-year-old grandson Ryan J- Dawson were killed in the accident.
