Woman Gets 10 Years for Crash That Killed Daughter

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- As part of a deal with prosecutors, 33-year-old Melissa Shonvette Johnson pleaded no contest Thursday to aggravated manslaughter of a child.
Authorities say Johnson flipped her vehicle in April 2011, causing her and her 14-year-old daughter Daquasha Johnson to be ejected. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Daquasha died, and Johnson's three other children, ages 10, 11 and 16 at the time, suffered minor injuries.
Johnson's blood alcohol content was recorded at 0.24 percent, which is three times the legal limit. An arrest report says Johnson admitted to drinking Crown Royal and taking cocaine.
