Two Ohio men have been sentenced in a fatal two-vehicle crash that killed one man's wife last November.

Andrew Miller and Richard Stephens both pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide charges in the Delaware County crash that killed Stephen's wife, 43-year-old Brenda Stephens.

Richard Stephens and 30-year-old Miller, both of Marion, were sentenced Monday to two years in prison, a $5,000 fine and three years of post-release control.

Authorities said 36-year-old Stephens was in the right lane on U.S. 36 when Miller's car went from the left to the right lane, striking Stephens' truck. Brenda Stephens died after she was thrown from the passenger seat.

Prosecutors say both men have lost their right to drive for life.
