FORT MADISON, Iowa (AP) — A southeastern Iowa woman accused of driving drunk has been imprisoned for a crash that killed her husband.

Lee County court records say 27-year-old Noelle Cosby, of Donnellson, was sentenced last week to five years in prison. She’d pleaded guilty.

Investigators say she was drunk and behind the wheel when she and her husband were heading home from a party on Dec. 10, 2017. Officials say she lost control of their sport utility vehicle, which ended up on its side in a driveway along Iowa Highway 2 near Donnellson. Police say 35-year-old Todd Cosby was thrown from the SUV and died at the scene.
