POMONA – Two men who earlier this month pleaded to the DUI traffic death of a Bellflower woman were sentenced to state prison today, the District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Miji Vellakkatel of the Pomona Branch Office said Elias Sibiano Munoz, 21, and Brian Rene Galvez, 24, were each sentenced to 10 years in state prison.

The defendants pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated on Dec. 4 for the March 2008 death of Ondrea Alvarez, 20.

After an outing at a local restaurant Munoz and Galvez engaged in a street race at speeds of more than 80 miles per hour. During the course of the race, Munoz – who was accompanied by Alvarez – lost control of his vehicle and crashed. Alvarez died from injuries sustained in the collision, prosecutors said.
