PIERRE PART, La. (AP) - A Louisiana woman has pleaded guilty to charges related to a fatal car crash last year.

The Advocate reports that 27-year-old Katy Landry pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular negligent injuring on Monday. Tyler Cavalier, public information officer for District Attorney Ricky Babin, says the charges stem from a car crash in Assumption Parish in January 2016 in which 58-year-old Cheryl Hebert was killed. Hebert had her son and grandson with her in the car; they were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

A blood sample taken from Landry and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime lab put Landry’s blood alcohol content at .13 percent, above the legal limit.

A judge deferred Landry’s sentencing, pending a pre-sentence investigation. Sentencing is set for Aug. 28.
