Woman Sentenced to One Year for Fatal Crash

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A 29-year-old Lake Charles woman has

been sentenced to one year in prison for causing a fiery

two-vehicle accident in 2004 that led to the deaths of a woman and

her 9-year-old daughter.

Heather Alford was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years, but Judge

David Ritchie suspended 9 years of the sentence on two counts of

vehicular negligent homicide and one count each of vehicular

negligent injuring and first-offense drunken driving.

The vehicular homicide charges stem from the deaths of

40-year-old Collette Fontenot and her daughter, Holly.

The vehicular negligent injuring charge stem from injuries

suffered by 41-year-old Robert Fontenot, the driver of a Jeep that

was rear-ended by Alford.

After Alford completes her time in prison she will be on five

years of supervised probation.
