PARSONS, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas man has been given two concurrent life sentences for causing a double-fatality crash while he fled from police.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/KhUgwT ) 25-year-old Kaston Hudgins of Galena was sentenced Thursday for the 2009 deaths of 41-year-old Teresa Kemp and her 13-year-old daughter, Taylor, both of Pittsburg.

Prosecutors say Hudgins was drinking when he fled from a Cherokee County sheriff's deputy and hit Kemp's vehicle south of Pittsburg.

Teresa Kemp was a teacher in Riverton, where Taylor Kemp was a student.

Hudgins was convicted in March of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of fleeing police.

Before his sentence, Hudgins read a statement in which apologized and said he hoped the Kemp family could forgive him someday.
