LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A Las Cruces woman sentenced earlier this month to 3½ years in prison for fatally running over her fiance has had a month of her term suspended.

Annette Fuschini had a presentation hearing Friday in state District Court.

The 39-year-old Fuschini was sentenced March 3 on her convictions for involuntary manslaughter and aggravated DWI in last June’s death of 42-year-old Carlos Nevarez III.

She got 18 months for involuntary manslaughter, one year in jail for a DWI offense with an enhanced one-year term for being a habitual offender, plus five years’ probation.

Fuschini was ordered to serve the sentences consecutively. But in order for the probation to be mandated, a portion of the sentence had to be suspended according to a statute of the DWI law.
