Sentencing expected in drunken driving deaths

DARIEN - The woman who caused a deadly accident on I-95 in Darien is scheduled to be in court today.

Police say Yadira Torres, 26, was driving drunk last May when she cut off a tractor-trailer, causing it to flip and catch fire.

The two people inside were killed.

Torres pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter late last year.

She could get up to eight years in prison when she is sentenced.
