A Millersville woman who officials said drove on a learner's permit without proper supervision when she ran a light and her vehicle crashed into a car, killing that driver, was sentenced Monday to six months in the Anne Arundel County jail and six months on house arrest, according to a spokeswoman for county prosecutors.

When he sentenced Elizabeth Ramirez, 20, for a manslaughter conviction, Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. also said she will be on supervised probation for five years once she is released. At the time of the July 31, 2011, crash, she was serving three years of probation for previous traffic charges, according to court records, having been given probation before judgment.

Police said Ramirez was the driver of a Jeep Cherokee that turned left into an oncoming car on Route 3 near Davidsonville Road. The other driver, Javaid Firdaus, 63, of Glen Burnie, died later at a hospital, according to police.
