The man who was drunk behind the wheel of an SUV that struck and killed two women in Coquitlam five years ago has decided he no longer wishes to appeal his conviction.
Cory Sater was under a previous court order not to consume alcohol when he drank six double rye and cokes and two shots at a bar before getting behind the wheel.
He struck at killed Charlene Reavely and Lorraine Cruz on Lougheed Highway and Pitt River Road.
Reavely had stopped to help Cruz and her boyfriend who had car trouble.
The evidence at trial was overwhelming, but Sater filed to appeal both the conviction and the seven-and-a-half year sentence.
But this week he’s told the BC Court of Appeal he’s only proceeding with the appeal of his sentence.
