GLOUCESTER, Va. (WAVY) - A Gloucester woman could face up to 11 years in prison after she struck and killed a pedestrian while driving drunk last summer.
Sgt. Michelle Anaya with the Virginia State Police said troopers were alerted to a crash involving a pedestrian during the early morning hours of June 6, 2012 along Route 17 just north of Hickory Fork Road in Gloucester. When they arrived, they found 54-year-old Alvin Darnell Wilson of Gloucester had been struck by a 2004 GMC Convoy.
Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Convoy, Debora Sue Auman, 52, was driving under the influence when she struck Wilson, Anaya said.
Auman was convicted Monday of DUI and manslaughter in Gloucester Circuit Court. She will be sentenced July 16 and faces up to 10 years for the manslaughter charge and up to one year for the DUI.
Norfolk Police are investigating the cause of death for male found unconscious on the beach.
Several local families could be out on the streets by the new year, if things don't improve at a Chesapeake shelter.
A disturbing national trend has found it's way into eastern North Carolina. There have been reports of young men punching innocent people -- with the intention of knocking them out -- and the victims never see it coming.
