DARLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - A southwest Wisconsin man will spend 10 years in prison for killing a woman in a drunk driving crash.

24-year-old Kyle Monahan of Shullsburg must spend 10 years under extended supervision when he gets out. He also has to pay restitution to his victim's survivors, the amount of which will be determined on February 25th in Lafayette County Circuit Court.

Authorities said Monahan was driving at a high rate of speed when his vehicle hit a creek embankment and rolled over several times. His passenger, 21-year-old Rebecca Cushman of Dixfield Maine, was killed.

A jury convicted Monahan of homicide by drunk driving. Two other charges were dropped, including negligent homicide.
