KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City man has been ordered to spend 22 years in prison for causing a 2013 crash that killed a crime scene investigator.
The Jackson County prosecutor’s office announced Tuesday that 31-year-old Larneal Davis was sentenced Monday for involuntary manslaughter and leaving the scene. He also was fined $200 for reckless driving.
Prosecutors said he was fleeing from police when he crashed into Michael Chou’s car. Chou had been driving out of the police crime lab parking lot and was killed.
Davis had consumed alcohol while celebrating his birthday before the crash. At the scene, officers detected the strong odor of alcohol on Davis and his blood-alcohol was .083 hours after the collision.
