TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A driver who struck and killed a 25-year-old Spanaway woman has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Renemichael Navarro pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide by reckless manner and DUI in the March death of Jade Aubrey-Peterson.

The News Tribune says the 26-year-old received a sentence higher than the standard range because of a prior DUI.

Aubrey-Peterson was crossing state Route 7 at about 10 p.m. on March 14 when she was struck. Tests later found she had methamphetamine in her system.

Court records show Navarro had been drinking before the crash but wasn’t speeding.



Navarro said in Pierce County Court Friday her family might forgive him.
