    MS - Woman & five kids, ages 1-9, killed by drunk driver, Neshoba County, 29 Dec 2012

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...SNWU00L1_UNEWS

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians was dealing Sunday with the devastating loss of five young siblings and an adult killed when their SUV plunged into a rain-swollen creek.

    Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell said the victims appear to have drowned after their Dodge Durango left a county road 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia just after midnight Saturday.

    "It's always sad to hear of the death of a tribal member, but today our tribe experienced a great tragedy with the loss of six beautiful Choctaw souls. I cannot begin to imagine what the friends, relatives and loved ones are feeling," Tribal Chief Phyliss J. Anderson said in a statement............

    The group was traveling to Conehatta, another Choctaw community, with Dewayne John driving. Waddell said he has been tested to see if he was under the influence of alcohol, though he said official results aren't in. If officials decide to file charges, Waddell said they probably wouldn't act until Wednesday...........

    Angry

    That is really horrible! To make matters worse, it was their own father who drove drunk.

    A Philadelphia man was sentenced to 90 years in prison Wednesday after a Lafayette County jury found him guilty of six counts of DUI/manslaughter in the deaths of his five children and an adult family friend last year.

    Duane John Sr., 34, of 10270 Road 604, was sentenced to 15 years on each count to run consecutively for a total 90 years.

    Fifteen years were suspended leaving 75 to serve.
