A Santa Barbara man was sentenced this week to 15 years in state prison for vehicular manslaughter for a collision that killed a Goleta couple.

On Feb. 9, 2020, Mary Jane Corral and her husband, Adolfo Corral, who were parents of four, were walking their dog on Cathedral Oaks Road when Eric Ramirez-Aguilar, who was intoxicated at the time, swerved off the road and struck the couple. He then fled the area.

In December 2021, Ramirez-Aguilar pleaded guilty to felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving while under the influence causing great bodily injury, and fleeing the scene of an accident that resulted in death.
