A Mathews man was sentenced to 22 years in prison for a drunk-driving crash that killed a Williamsburg man last year.
Robert Paul Twiddy, 33, was sentenced to 46 years in prison with 24 years suspended in Williamsburg-James City County Circuit Court on Wednesday.
The sentence came nearly six months after Twiddy pleaded guilty to murder, DUI, third or subsequent offense and driving after the forfeiture of a license on Oct. 19, 2015. He was also charged with involuntary manslaughter, but that charge was nolle prossed the same day he pleaded.
When a charge is nolle prossed prosecutors agree not to pursue it unless further evidence is found.
