WINCHESTER, Va. (AP) - A Frederick County man has been sentenced for causing a wreck that killed four family members.
    
Steven Boyce pleaded guilty in August to four counts of aggravated manslaughter and other charges.
    
The Winchester Star (http://bit.ly/UtgcV1 ) says the 22-year-old Steven Boyce receive concurrent 15-year sentences Tuesday on the aggravated manslaughter counts.
    
Boyce also received 12 months each for driving under the influence and under-age alcohol possession, and three years for a probation revocation. These sentences are to be served consecutively.
    
Police say a pickup truck driven by Boyce hit the back of a Jeep Cherokee at a red light on June 26, 2011.
    
The Jeep Cherokee's occupants were killed. They were identified as 49-nine-year-old Mark K. Roe, his 31-year-old wife, Amanda, and the couple's sons, 11-year-old Caleb and 4-year-old Tyler.
