Jesse Eliseo Barhight, 34, of Seguin has been sentenced to two, concurrent 10-year prison sentences. This follows his June 1 plea of guilty to two counts of intoxicated manslaughter with a motor vehicle.

Barhight was charged in connection with a Sept. 13, 2009, crash that ended the lives of 39-year-old Simon Garcia and his 61-year-old wife, Cynthia. The pedestrian couple were returning from a late-night shopping trip to Walmart on U.S. 181 in Floresville when Barhight’s vehicle struck the pair, killing them at the scene.
