WALTERS, OK (KSWO) -An Indiana man who pleaded guilty to killing two women in a wrong-way crash in Cotton County is set to learn his sentence.

Jerry Cochran, 46, of Anderson, Indiana, pleaded guilty in March to two counts of first-degree manslaughter.

The crash happened in July 2015 on I-44, just north of Randlett. Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that Cochran was driving drunk and going the wrong-direction when he hit an on-coming car. The collision caused it to spin and eventually catch fire.

Two 70-year-old women were killed.

Cochran faces a minimum of four years and a maximum of life in prison.
