A St Paul woman admitted to being drunk when she hit and killed a motorcyclist back in November.
Hannah Weyh, 29, pleaded guilty Friday to criminal vehicular homicide in connection to the Nov. 8, 2015, death of 31-year-old Brandon Pearson, according to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.
She admitted to having a blood alcohol level of .19 – more than twice the legal limit – when she turned left into oncoming traffic. Pearson wasn't able to avoid Weyh's car.
According to the charges against her, Weyh said she was driving west on Broadway Avenue Northeast in Minneapolis around 6 p.m. when she remembered she had to feed her dog. She went to turn left into a parking lot when they crash happened.
Weyh is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 19. The maximum sentence for criminal vehicular homicide is 10 years in prison and/or a $20,000 fine.
