A woman was sentenced to 19 years to life in prison after she killed her 9-year-old daughter in a drunk driving crash.
41-year-old Karen Faye Honeycutt drove under the influence of alcohol and pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter in the death of her daughter. She also pleaded guilty to infliction of bodily harm on her two other children who were also in the crash.
Court records indicate that Honeycutt had about a dozen beers before she got in her car. Her blood-alcohol level was more than 3 times the legal limit at the time of the crash. She also had traces of marijuana in her blood.
Records also show that investigators found an empty beer can in her car, as well as 11 others in her house.
Her 9-year-old daughter, Chloe, as well as her 8-year-old son and 17-year-old son were with her in the Jeep when she lost control of the vehicle and hit a utility pole on January 26.
Chloe and the 17-year-old were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident. They were both thrown from the car. Chloe died, and the 17-year-old suffered a broken back.
Honeycutt sustained a broken neck. The younger son was wearing his seat belt and was not hurt.
