Man with history of drunk driving sentenced in woman’s death

ROGUE RIVER, Ore. (AP) — A Rogue River man with a history of drunk driving has been sentenced for manslaughter in the death of a woman who perished in a traffic accident.

The Mail Tribune reports that 46-year-old Richard Shawn Stocke was sentenced Monday to more than six years in prison.

Stocke’s defense attorney says he doesn’t remember anything about the accident that killed 37-year-old Darlene Nichole Harris last summer.

Harris was a passenger in Stocke’s car on July 5 when he left the road and crashed into a driveway.

The homeowner’s car, truck and motorhome were totaled.

Harris and Stocke were ejected and Harris was pinned under the wheel of the homeowner’s parked truck.

She died at the scene.

Stocke had a conviction for drunk driving in 1999 and numerous tickets for unsafe driving.
