TWIN FALLS, Idaho — A Utah man has been sentenced following a car crash that killed his fiancee on a trip to Idaho to tell her mother they were getting married.

Sean David Rees, of West Valley City, was sentenced Tuesday to 180 days in jail and two years of unsupervised probation, the Times-News reports.

Fifth District Judge Thomas Kershaw suspended 150 days in jail and credited Rees with 28 days spent in jail while the case was pending, meaning Rees must serve two more days in jail.

Rees pleaded guilty in July to vehicular manslaughter.

Authorities say that Rees in June 2016 ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle, killing his passenger, Ashley Web, 23, and leaving him to raise their then-5-month-old son.
