Man sentenced to 5 years in OVI crash that killed girlfriend
KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) - A Tri-State man was sentenced to five years in prison Tuesday by a Kenton County judge after the passenger in his vehicle was killed in April 2021.
Police say Kevin Ferguson, 25, was driving on I-75 south near the Crittenden exit when he lost control of his vehicle, drove off the highway and hit a tree.
Ferguson’s girlfriend, Jordan Miller, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ferguson pleaded guilty to one count of vehicular manslaughter in November 2022.
According to Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders, Ferguson blew a 0.04 after the crash which is only half the legal BAC limit in Kentucky but he also had smoked marijuana beforehand.
“Given the combination of both marijuana and alcohol, he was definitely under the influence at the time of the crash,” Sanders said.
