NEW ROADS, La. (AP) - A Pointe Coupee Parish grand jury has indicted a Ventress woman on a count of vehicular homicide in a wreck that killed a New Roads woman in December.
The grand jury on Monday also indicted 23-year-old Victoria Gosserand on a count of first-degree negligent vehicular injuring in the Dec. 23 wreck that killed 23-year-old Terri Parker and sent 23-year-old Kyle Riviere to a hospital with serious injuries.
Prosecutor Tony Clayton tells The Advocate that Gosserand's blood-alcohol content was 0.30, or nearly four times the 0.08 legal limit, the night of the wreck.
If convicted of vehicular homicide, the more serious of the two charges, Gosserand faces up to 30 years in prison with a minimum of five years served without the benefit of parole, probation or a suspended sentence.
