OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – An Oklahoma City cardiologist has been sentenced to 17-years for a DUI incident on I-35 that killed a motorcyclist in October 2018, KOKO5 reports.

Bryan Perry was sentenced to 15 years for first-degree manslaughter, one year for driving under the influence, and one year for obstruction and fleeing the scene.
