A Dorchester man who was driving drunk when he crashed a stolen van, killing his passenger, was sentenced to 20 years behind bars, after he was convicted of manslaughter in Suffolk Superior Court, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said Wednesday. Warren Tyler was convicted Tuesday of manslaughter and motor vehicle homicide, but Judge Jeffrey Locke dismissed the motor vehicle homicide charge on technical grounds and sentenced Tyler only for manslaughter. Tyler, 47, was behind the wheel of a stolen van when he crashed near Harrison Avenue and East Berkeley Street in the South End around 12:20 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2010. His passenger, Johnny Williams Jr., was killed on impact.
