BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -

A St. Landry Parish man has been convicted of vehicular homicide charges in an alleged road rage- and alcohol-related Interstate 10 crash in Baton Rouge that killed five Ascension Parish residents.

The Advocate reports 22-year-old David Leger of Palmetto will be sentenced Aug. 26 by State District Judge Trudy White. 

Leger faces a sentence of five to 30 years in prison on each of five vehicular homicide counts.

The wreck occurred on March 13, 2011. Killed in the wreck were 29-year-old Effie Fontenot and 19-year-old Kimberly Stagg, both of Prairieville, and Fontenot's three sons, ages 3, 7 and 11.

White convicted 24-year-old Kelsye Hall of Baton Rouge in August on five counts of negligent homicide in the crash and sentenced her in October to two years in prison.
