LAS VEGAS (AP) – A 42-year-old Las Vegas man has been sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison in the drunken-driving death of a 12-year-old trick-or-treater a little more than a year ago.
Justin Caramanica Kikikoi was sentenced Monday following his guilty plea in July to driving under the influence during the crash that killed Faith Love on Oct. 31, 2011.
Love was trick-or-treating as a Native American princess when she was struck by Caramanica’s car on a residential street in western Las Vegas.
Police say Caramanica’s blood-alcohol percentage was just under the .08 limit for driving in Nevada, but he appeared impaired and might have been under the influence of prescription drugs.
Caramanica’s bail was revoked after his arrest on a DUI charge following another crash in September.
