WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to three years of probation in a 2018 crash that killed two women. Prosecutors said 40-year-old Tito Kyando was sentenced Friday for two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of 21-year-old Uriel Salabao and 20-year-old Miyah Latney. Jurors convicted him of the charges in March. Police found Kyando was driving 88 mph in a 40 mph zone shortly before ramming his sport utility vehicle into the subcompact car in which the women were riding. They had been turning left. If Kyando violates the terms of his probation, he could face up to two years and eight months in prison.
