A Gila River Community man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for manslaughter in the death of a Tempe teenager.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael Kemp sentenced 23-year-old Steven Landrum Friday in connection with a fatal crash that killed 18-year-old Tempe Corona del Sol High School senior Cody Bishop nearly a year ago.

Police said Landrum's blood alcohol level registered .227 — nearly three times the legal limit of .08 at the time of the crash.

Chandler police said Bishop was attempting to make a left turn from Ray Road into a business complex at Rural Road when his car was struck by Landrum's vehicle.
