Woman That Caused Alcohol Related Crash Rejects Right to Trial

29-year-old, Myiasha Brown has been charged with manslaughter relating to the car crash that killed a student from Oklahoma last summer, and she has since waived her right to a trial. In addition, Brown crashed her vehicle head-on into 20-year-old, Taylor Witcher’s car on July 27, 2014. The very next day Witcher was taken off life support and died from her injuries she sustained in the head-on crash caused by Brown. Witcher had two other passengers in her vehicle at the time of the crash and both people required surgeries.

When police arrived on the scene of the car crash that day they found Brown passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle, and at a nearby hospital she tested a .22 blood alcohol concentration. In accordance with her first-degree manslaughter charge, Brown may also face three counts of causing injures to others and driving under the influence. The judge presiding over Brown’s case gave her extra days to make arrangements for her three young children before she’s due back in custody on Thursday. Brown has been out of bond since February. Since Brown declined her right to trial by jury she could face a sentence ranging from 10 to 30 years in prison.
