HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - An Iraq war veteran who claims she turned to alcohol to relieve post-traumatic stress disorder has been sentenced to 2 ½ to 5 years in prison crashing and killing another Pennsylvania woman.

Thirty-four-year-old Jennifer Sloan, of Cresson, lost her license due to drunken driving convictions, but drove anyway on April 3, 2013. She wasn’t drunk, but was driving more than 80 mph and crashed into a car driven by 58-year-old Connie Naylor, of Dysart, who died.

Sloan was free on bond until September 2014, when her bail was revoked due to another drunken driving arrest. She’s been in the Blair County jail for 15 months, so Thursday’s sentence means she’ll serve at least 15 more months.

Sloan must also carry a picture of Naylor and place flowers on her grave after she gets out of prison.
