Man sentenced to life in prison after fatal wreck

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man has been sentenced to life in prison after kidnapping three young children and causing a fatal car wreck.

Kyle Thompson was convicted of murder, assault and running from police.

Last June, Thompson kidnapped the kids and was on the run when his car slammed into another car on the Joe Prather Highway.

Ashley Berry, age 22, died. It was just six weeks before her wedding day.

Jurors recommended a life sentence, plus 100 years, but the law doesn't allow that in Kentucky. A judge gave Thompson life in prison, with the possibility of parole in 20 years.
