CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- A Caldwell County woman has been convicted of felony second-degree murder and aggravated serious injury by motor vehicle in a fatal crash in April 2012.
April Cheri Childers, 37, of Granite Falls, was convicted Tuesday and sentenced to a minimum of 170 months in jail.
The charges stem from an April 2012 crash on Highway 127 that killed 32-year-old Ashley Britt.
Childers was driving under the influence of controlled substances and crossed the center line, striking Britt’s vehicle.
Childers was convicted of DWI in Burke County back in 1997, in Caldwell County in 2003, and again in 2006 in Catawba County.
