A Claremore teenager convicted of driving with a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit was handed a 20-year prison sentence Thursday in connection with a wrong-way crash that killed a man and his infant son.

District Judge J. Dwayne Steidley found Keaton Leon Hannah, 19, guilty of two counts of first-degree manslaughter in the June 17, 2011, deaths of Eric Watkins, 21, and 7-month-old Bryor Watkins.

The judge also found Hannah, who had a blood alcohol level of .26 percent, guilty of leaving the scene of an accident involving damage. Steidley doled out two, 20-year sentences on the manslaughter counts and a one-year county jail term on the leaving the scene conviction, running all terms concurrently and giving Hannah credit for time served.
