Mug shot of Jordan Stafford

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A man who was convicted last month in the deaths of two construction workers during a crash in 2014 was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday morning.

A grand jury indicted Jordan Stafford in November 2015 for the May 2014 crash that killed highway workers Kenneth Duerson Jr. and Coty DeMoss. Both were working on I-69 and preparing to end their shifts when they were killed.

Stafford was charged with two counts of reckless operation in a highway work zone and two counts of failure to obey a traffic control device or flagman. Last month, a jury found him guilty on all four counts.

Stafford was sentenced to five years for Duerson’s death and five years for DeMoss’ death. He will serve those terms consecutively in the DOC.
