Undocumented immigrant Orling Carrasco-Zelaya is sentenced to 24-34 years in prison in Douglas County District Court on Thursday.  He ran over and killed his friend Margarito Nava-Luna while drunk in 2016.

The incident happened near 104th & Manderson Plaza.  Nava-Luna and Carrasco-Zelaya were captured on video drinking together at Bogie's Bar shortly before the victim was killed.  Carrasco-Zelaya backed over his friend when he got out of the vehicle, and took off.

Another driver alerted authorities to the convicted since he was driving erratically.  He was arrested a short time later for DUI and had a BAC of .239.

With Goodtime Carrasco-Zelaya will serve 12 years in prison.  His sentence was enhanced because he's been convicted of DUI in two other states.  He will get credit for 391 days served.
