CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, New Jersey — A drunken driver who struck and killed two teenage cousins on a southern New Jersey roadway two years ago has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter charges.

Cape May County prosecutors say 33-year-old Joshua Malmgren of Middle Township is expected to receive two nine-year state prison terms when he's sentenced Dec. 5. The terms will be served consecutively, and he will have to serve more than 15 years before he becomes eligible for parole.

Prosecutors say Malmgren was driving drunk and texting in July 2012 when his sport utility vehicle hit 15-year-old Nioami Lazicki and 13-year-old Ashley Dauber of Philadelphia on a Middle Township road.

Lazicki's 14-year-old sister was walking with them but was able to get out of the way of the vehicle.
