ARLINGTON - A man who pleaded guilty in July to killing a 22-year-old Iowan last year in a drunken driving crash in Gratiot was sentenced Thursday to 10 years. John Drew Brewington, 24, Salem, is ordered to serve three years of his sentence in prison and seven years on parole for the felony conviction of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and a misdemeanor conviction of causing injury by operating while under the influence. Lafayette County Circuit Court Judge Duane M. Jorgenson also ordered Brewington not to possess or consume alcohol, or go into bars or liquor stores.
