A Barberton woman will be spending some time behind bars for driving drunk and causing a crash that killed her fiance.
The Beacon Journal reports 26-year-old Jessica Thomas will serve the next three years in prison for the accident that claimed Jeffery Spencer's life March 31 of last year.
Thomas also received a lifetime driver's license suspension and a $1,000 fine.
Thomas was driving with Spencer around 2:30 a.m. when her car veered off SR 241 in Springfield Township before crashing into a tree. Spencer was partially ejected from the car and died from his injuries four days later. Thomas was also injured in the crash.
Prosecutors says she had an alcohol level of 0.16 and traces of marijuana in her system. A jury convicted Thomas of aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle while impaired last month.
