Greeley, CO (AP) - A judge has rejected a plea agreement for a 22-year-old man who was involved in a crash in northern Colorado that killed two siblings and an Air Force senior airman.

The Greeley Tribune reports Weld County Court Judge Michele Meyer rejected 22-year-old Anthony Alacca's deal Friday, saying a sentence that didn't include jail time wouldn't be sufficient. Alacca, of Cheyenne, Wyo., pleaded guilty in January to careless driving resulting in death and agreed to three years of unsupervised probation.

He was driving on U.S. 85 early on the morning of Aug. 15 when he failed to negotiate a curve north of Nunn.

Killed were 21-year-old Michael De La Rosa, 19-year-old Mariah Lynn De La Rosa, both of Cheyenne; and 21-year-old senior airman Michael Gnoato, who was stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base near Cheyenne.
