SPARTANBURG (AP) — A North Carolina woman has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for a wreck in South Carolina that killed one teen and injured another.

Multiple media outlets reported that 42-year-old Lisa Cheree Fall of Rutherfordton, North Carolina, pleaded guilty Monday to felony driving under the influence resulting in death.

She also pleaded guilty to felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury.

Circuit Judge Frank Addy Jr. also sentenced Fall to four years of probation after the prison term.
