A former New Rochelle police officer was sentenced Friday to 2 ½ to 7 years in a state prison after a drunken driving accident that killed his best friend.
As News 12 previously reported, Harry Kyreakedes, 28, was off duty when police say he crashed the car into a tree off Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, killing his passenger and friend, 27-year-old Isaac Ward.
Police say Kyreakedes’ blood alcohol level was .18 at the time.
