DUI Manslaughter Sentence

A Marianna woman will spend 30 years behind bars for a vehicle crash that killed a five-year-old boy.

Thirty-four-year-old Layura Sellers was convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child, DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.

Authorities say sellers was driving about 70 miles-per-hour when she crashed her van in January 2005.

Reports say Sellers' son and the five-year-old boy were sitting in the front seat of the van, without seat belts, at the time of the crash.

Prosecutors say there's no solid evidence that Sellers' blood alcohol level was above the legal limit. However, she admits she had two beers before the crash.
