The man who killed two 15-year-old Anchorage girls while driving drunk, in a case that drovea local backlash against fatal DUI collisions,has been ordered to receive a new sentence after an appellate court found that "retribution" drove the original judge.

In a Friday decision, the Alaska Court of Appeals rejected Superior Court Judge Kevin Saxby's 32-year sentence for Stacey Graham in the August 2013 deaths of Jordyn Durr and Brooke McPheters. The court is remanding the case back to the Superior Court for a re-sentencing by a different judge.

The Court of Appeals decided that Saxby made procedural errors in Graham's sentencing hearing, which included emotional videos, music and testimony from APD officers.
