People v. Tackett, C044770

In case involving killing of husband and wife and injury of child when their car was hit by a speeding drunk driver, conviction and sentence for felony driving under the influence of alcohol-related and gross vehicular manslaughter-related counts is modified to stay sentence enhancements, but is otherwise affirmed over principal claims that the trial court erred in excluding evidence of prior occasions in which the passenger in defendant's car recklessly drove a car while he was under the influence of alcohol.
