Southern Illinois Woman Gets Six Years in Prison for Deadly Wreck

By The Associated Press

BENTON, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois woman has been sentenced to six years in prison after admitting her role in a deadly car wreck.  WSIL-TV reports that 31-one-year-old Tabitha Weeks of rural Benton pleaded guilty Wednesday in Franklin County to a charge of aggravated driving under the influence.  Franklin County authorities say Weeks' car crossed into the oncoming path of a family's minivan in June, killing that vehicle's 41-year-old driver, Craig Payne of Bonnie, and injuring several other family members.  A judge also ordered Weeks to spend two years on post-prison supervised release.
