PORT WASHINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee man will spend nine years in prison for killing a female passenger while driving drunk.

29-year-old Jaron Omon of Port Washington was sentenced yesterday in Ozaukee County. A judge told him to spend 6 years under extended supervision after his prison term.

Authorities said Omon’s blood alcohol level was 0.22 – almost three times the minimum for intoxication – when his vehicle hit a tree and a roadside fence near Grafton on June 10th.

His passenger, 37-year-old Kelly Phillips, also of Port Washington, was killed.

Omon, a former Boy Scout leader, pleaded guilty to his most serious charge – a felony count of homicide by drunk driving.

Three related traffic counts, including his first OWI ticket, were dropped in a plea bargain.
