ALFRED, Maine (AP) - A Maine woman accused of running over a Massachusetts teacher in August has been sentenced to three years in prison on charges of manslaughter, drunken driving, reckless conduct and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police say 23-year-old Carolyn Lee of York was driving an SUV in 2015 that hit Emily Zarnoch, of Quincy, Massachusetts, as she walked hand-in-hand with her boyfriend in York. The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2eNCxCy ) she tearfully apologized to Zarnoch’s family Thursday.

The 24-year-old Zarnoch, who died the following morning, was about to start a new job as a middle school teacher.

Lee received four years’ probation, will lose her driver’s license for 10 years, must complete 200 hours of community service and was fined $7,100. She’ll be subject to random searches and testing and must undergo substance abuse and psychological counseling.
