Neenah Man Convicted of Killing Two While Driving Drunk Sentenced to 20 Years

APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) -  

Joseph Konetzke has been sentenced for the deaths of two people while driving drunk near Shiocton.

The 57-year-old Neenah man will serve 20 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision after pleading no contest to two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. Last December, Konetze ran a stop sign and crashed into another car, killing 82-year-old David Rosol and 83-year-old Hazel Dewitt.

After the sentencing, Diane Urban -- The eldest daughter of Rosol and Dewitt -- told Konetzke "Maybe this will send a message to those who decide to drink and drive and not think of anyone else."

Konetzke was three times the legal limit when he caused the crash.
