MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Jurors in Minot are deliberating the fate of a Minot Air Force Base woman accused of causing a fatal accident in the city two years ago.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1BO1o9J ) that the trial of 32-year-old Maria Sutton began Tuesday, and jurors got the case Thursday afternoon. Judge Doug Mattson sent them home Thursday evening with orders to reconvene Friday morning.

Sutton is accused of driving her car in the wrong lane in June 2013 and striking a vehicle driven by 49-year-old Robert Morrison head-on, killing the Westhope man.

Sutton pleaded not guilty to a felony negligent homicide charge that carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison.
