    CLAREMORE, Okla. - One of two Rogers County brothers convicted after a deadly hit-and-run crash asked the judge to let him skip jail time and join the Marines instead.

    The judge denied the request, sentencing Gage and Dakota Shriver to 25 yeas in prison. 

    In September, a jury convicted Gage and Dakota Shriver for the crash in June 2015 that killed Noelle New and critically injured Maranda Talley. Dakota was convicted of second-degree murder and Gage was convicted of first-degree manslaughter.

    FOX23 learned from pre-sentence investigation reports that Gage Shriver asked the judge to allow him to join the military in lieu of serving time in jail.

    FOX23's JJ Burton is updating the sentencing hearing live from the courtroom:
