50 YEARS FOR MAN WHO KILLED MOTORCYCLISTS

SIOUXLAND—A Nebraska man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for a drunken crash that killed four motorcyclists in Siouxland. The sentence for 22-year-old Andrew Schlichtemeier, of Murray, Neb., was in keeping with a plea deal he accepted last month in Harrison County District Court. He pleaded guilty to four counts of vehicular homicide. Iowa authorities have said  Schlichtemeier was drunk when he swerved into oncoming traffic on Aug. 9 near Little Sioux. Prosecutors say Schlichtemeier had a blood-alcohol level that was more than four times the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. The victims were returning from the annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D. They were Dennis Chaney and Dale Aspedon, both of Glenwood, Steven Benscoter of Pacific Junction and Jay Bock of Omaha, Neb.
