PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. (AP) — An eastern Nebraska man has been sentenced to up to nine years in prison for causing a crash last year that led to the death of a Louisville woman.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 36-year-old Jade Gunn, of Murray, was sentenced this week to seven to nine years in prison after earlier pleading guilty to being drunk when he committed motor vehicle homicide and for failing to stop at the scene of a crash with injuries.

Investigators say Gunn was drunk on June 30, 2019, when he failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a sport utility vehicle.

The driver of the SUV, 58-year-old Tammy Martin, was taken to an Omaha hospital, where she died of her injuries 18 days later.
