Slattery was driving near Peotone on Aug, 28, 2011 when he veered into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into a car driven by 72-year-old Margaret Simons of Rolling Meadows.

Simons and her 92-year-old mother, Suzanne Thomson, also of Rolling Meadows, were killed.

Prosecutors contended that Slattery's blood-alcohol level was .092 shortly after the accident, and a blood test for opiates was positive.
