WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A north-central Wisconsin woman has pleaded no contest in a crash that killed a bicyclist in 2015.

Fifty-five-year-old Lorie Ann Miller of Rib Lake was found guilty of homicide by negligent driving after entering her plea Monday. Miller was accused of hitting and killing a bicyclist while texting and driving near Marshfield.

As part of the plea agreement, Miller likely will serve nine months in jail and nine years on probation. Sentencing is set for May 16.

USA Today Network-Wisconsin (https://wdhne.ws/2lojgrr ) reports Marathon County Assistant District Attorney Kyle Mayo said during the plea hearing that the family of the victim, 52-year-old Donna David of Marshfield, does not agree with the plea deal.

David taught chemistry at Northcentral Technical College and was a researcher with the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation.
