MANITOWOC, Wis. -

An intoxicated driver is sentenced to three years in prison for the death of bicyclist in Manitowoc County.

Forty-two-year-old Dean Koenig, of Valders, was earlier found guilty of felony homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.

Wayne Scharenbroch was struck and killed in April 2010 as he biked on a road in the town of Meeme. Koenig called the sheriff's department to report hitting a deer. A passing motorist found the victim's body.

Koenig addressed Scharenbroch's family in Manitowoc County Circuit Court Monday. Koenig told them the accident changed the lives of both families forever.

The Herald Times Reporter says Koenig was also sentenced to seven years of extended supervision.
