BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A plea deal has been reached for a St. Albans woman accused of supplying alcohol to her teenage son before he was involved in a fatal crash two years ago.

James Companion was sentenced last summer to a little over two years in prison after pleading guilty to a drunken driving crash that killed his passenger.

He was driving on May 25, 2012, when the car crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames, killing 25-year-old Tasha Maring of Colchester.

Companion’s mother, Melissa Grant, has been charged with buying the alcohol that her son drank that night.

The state’s attorney tells WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/1vbe4VX) that Grant has agreed to a sentence of three months in jail and six months of home confinement. She is expected to be sentenced on Monday.
