CHADRON, Neb. (AP) — A South Dakota woman is scheduled to be sentenced April 7 in northwest Nebraska for the drunken driving crash death of a 6-year-old girl.

Court records say Kimberly Eagle Bull of Box Elder, pleaded no contest to vehicular homicide while driving under the influence and to other charges and to other charges including Motor Vehicle Homicide-DUI, a Class 2A Felony, DUI Causing Serious Bodily Injury, a Class 3A Felony, and misdemeanor charges of Transporting a Child While Intoxicated and False Reporting.

She faces up to 20 years in prison.

The rollover accident killed 6-year-old Christina Roubideaux and injured two other children.
