Posted: Updated:
HELENA, Mont. -

A man whose drunk driving killed four people in December 2011 was sentenced in federal court Thursday to 33 years and nine months in prison.

Bruce Eagleman, Jr. was sentenced after his guilty plea to second degree murder. Court documents indicate Eagleman drank with some friends, and then drove himself and one friend back to Crow Agency. Eagleman drove his car in the wrong direction on East Frontage Road and crashed into an oncoming car. Eagleman's passenger and the three passengers in the other car died from the crash.

Hardin City Court reports Eagleman had a previous driving under the influence conviction. He was also sentenced to a supervised release of five years and a $100 special assessment.
