BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota woman accused in a vehicle-pedestrian accident that killed two people has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Sheila Morin pleaded guilty in federal court to two counts of involuntary manslaughter for the October 2012 incident on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation.

Authorities say Morin was drunk when she caused the accident that killed 41-year-old Jennifer Crissler and 30-year-old Lacey Delorme.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered Morin to pay nearly $15,000 in restitution.
