PEMBERTON — A woman who was drunk and speeding at 90 miles an hour when she killed a 17-year-old driver in a head-on crash has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
At the time of her guilty plea in November, Wanda Sprague said she did not remember the collision that left Kayla Bowen dead at the scene well over a year ago.
Prosecutors previously said Sprague had also not turned her headlights on before the crash after 9 p.m. on Dec. 16, 2021.
The plea deal involved charges of aggravated manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
Bowen, a resident of Browns Mills, was a senior at Pemberton Township High School and was in the school's Medical Arts Program.
