    A 34-year-old Arlington man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for a wreck that caused the death of a retired hospital administrator.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Saturday that Jeffery Lamar was sentenced by a magistrate after pleading guilty to intoxication manslaughter in the wreck that caused the death of Larry Thompson. Thompson, 63, died as he drove home from a community theater production in Azle last February.

    Thompson was dressed as a priest for the play, causing confusion when emergency responders found him after the head-on collision.

    Thompson had a 35-year career in hospital management, including 12 years as president of Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle.
