FORT EDWARD, N.Y. (AP) - A New York appeals court has overturned the aggravated driving while intoxicated conviction of a Vermont woman arrested after a fatal crash in upstate New York.

The Glens Falls Post Star (https://bit.ly/1wguPju ) reports that the Appellate Division’s decision means Cassie Earley of Arlington, Vermont, won’t have to serve a one-year jail sentence for the July 2012 crash in Hebron that killed 83-year-old Vincent Muro Sr. of West Rutland, Vermont.

The Washington County jury that convicted Earley of DWI acquitted her of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.

The Appellate Division found a technical error with the application made by a sheriff’s investigator to get a court order to take a blood sample from Earley.

District Attorney Tony Jordan said his office will appeal to the state’s highest court.
