A man who ran over and killed two pedestrians in Goddard in 2015 was convicted Monday of two counts of involuntary manslaughter, according to the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office.
Sedgwick County District Judge Stephen Ternes found Myles Evans guilty during a bench trial, a proceeding in which the judge rather than a jury hears evidence and testimony and decides whether to convict or acquit a defendant.
On Aug. 21, 2015, Evans was driving under the influence when he struck Paul LaBrue, 72, and David Bell, 70, in their neighborhood at around 11:30 a.m.
The two men were pronounced dead of multiple blunt-force injuries later that day, according to court documents.
LaBrue’s 2-year-old Chihuahua, Sugar, was also killed in the crash.
A sentencing date for Evans has not been set.
