SALISBURY, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland judge has found a Pennsylvania woman guilty of criminally negligent manslaughter by vehicle in an August 2012 crash that killed her 11-year-old daughter.
The Daily Times reports ( http://delmarvane.ws/19vjl25 ) that 39-year-old Tabitha Dobrzynski of New Kensington, Pa., was found guilty on Monday of criminally negligent manslaughter by vehicle and driving while impaired by drugs.
State Police Trooper Mark Miller says Dobrzynski told him she had taken several prescription drugs on the day of the crash and she did not do well on sobriety tests. Dobrzynski was traveling on the Route 13 Bypass in Salisbury when she lost control of her Jeep and it overturned. Police say 11-year-old Sophia Dobrzynski was not wearing a seat belt and died after she was thrown from the vehicle.
Sentencing was deferred.
