Driver To Be Sentenced For Fatal Accident

PIERRE, SD


A woman from La Plant on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation will be sentenced in October following her guilty plea to involuntary manslaughter.


Federal prosecutors say Rita Miner was driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana when her vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian east of Eagle Butte last September. The 48-year-old Miner also is known as Rita Paz.

The maximum prison sentence for the crime is eight years.
