ROCHESTER, New York — A western New York man has been sentenced to a maximum of nine years in state prison for aggravated vehicular homicide and driving while intoxicated for the wrong-way crash that killed a Rochester-area woman last year.

The Monroe County District Attorney's office says 31-year-old Robert Rector of Fairport was sentenced Monday by Supreme Court Justice Thomas Moran.

Rector was driving the wrong way on Interstate 490 in Rochester early on the morning of Nov. 23, 2013, when his pickup truck collided with a vehicle driven by 19-year-old Khadijah McKenzie of Gates.

Prosecutors say Rector had been drinking with friends and his blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit.
