Terri Sanders, 55, Nocona, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Monday after a jury found her guilty of two counts of manslaughter and one of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from a fatality accident three years ago.
The trial began with jury selection on Dec. 4 and testimony opening the next day continuing through the week. It was a case laden with expert testimony and a long list of witnesses. District Attorney Casey Polhemus said on the first day nine witnesses were presented.
Jurors went out to deliberate Monday and spent about two-and-a-half hours before returning with a guilty verdict on all charges. They immediately went into sentencing and came back with eight years in prison on each of the manslaughter cases and four on the aggravated assault, for a total of 20 years which will run concurrently.
