Kansas Woman Sentenced to More Than 9 Years in Deadly Crash

KSAL StaffJune 18, 2016

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) – A northeast Kansas woman has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for causing a deadly crash while using drugs.

Thirty-seven-year-old Jaime Carter, of rural Linwood, was sentenced Thursday in Leavenworth County District Court for the May 2014 crash that killed 49-year-old Mary Steuber and led to the amputation of one of her husband’s legs.

The Leavenworth Times reports that Steuber was riding with her husband on a motorcycle when Carter’s car crashed into them. Carter tested positive for methamphetamine and prescription drugs after the crash.

Carter pleaded guilty last year to involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of drugs, aggravated battery and driving with a suspended license.

Carter’s attorney, Elaine Halley, said her client has “severe mental illnesses” and “admits she made a terrible decision.”
