Feb 24 2010 | 2:14am ET

A police officer who ran over a hedge fund analyst and his girlfriend last year was sentenced to up to 10-and-a-half years in prison.
 
Martin Abreu pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular manslaughter last year. The Jersey City, N.J., cop hit Dennis Loffredo and his girlfriend, Marilyn Feng, last February in Manhattan’s Financial District. Feng, a lawyer, died at the scene, while Loffredo suffered leg and head injuries. Both were 26 at the time.

Abreu’s blood-alcohol level was well above the legal limit.

Abreu was sentenced to three-and-a-half to 10-and-a-half years. He is eligible for parole after three-and-a-half years.
