GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A 21-year-old woman who caused a crash near Fruita that killed her cousin will serve more than 200 days in jail.

Alexis Perez pleaded guilty in July to vehicular homicide while driving recklessly. Authorities say she failed roadside sobriety tests after she lost control of her Jeep and crashed in the desert April 5.

Her cousin, 18-year-old Lydia Perez, was killed in the crash.

Alexis Perez was ticketed about two months after the crash for driving without a valid license, not having insurance and not properly restraining her young child. She then failed to appear to answer the charges.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (https://goo.gl/pk1n5t ) she received 210 days in jail for both cases, with credit for three days already served.
