Manchester woman sentenced in deaths
A Carroll County woman was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison for killing three people, including a family of two returning from church, in an accident as she raced at 100 mph to get to a Target store before its closing time.
Kathleen Jean McIntyre, 48, of Manchester pleaded guilty in May to three counts of vehicular manslaughter in the deaths of Shirley Mae Bosley, 70, Tammy Sue Reindollar, 34, and Anthony Norman Thomas, 14, according to court records.
She was charged with more than a dozen counts, including homicide by motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, in the May 2004 crash. A test three hours after the accident showed she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.06 - which a prosecutor said later indicated she had been above the legal limit of 0.08 at the time of the crash.
Carroll Circuit Judge Michael M. Galloway sentenced McIntyre to five years for each of the vehicular manslaughter counts but suspended five years as part of a plea agreement. He also imposed a mandatory five years of probation when she is released.
