BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A woman who pinned and killed her ex-husband with her SUV in Buffalo has been sentenced to three to nine years in prison.

Cuansharee Palmer was sentenced Friday after being convicted in May of manslaughter and drunken driving.

Authorities say Donnell Sharp was killed after getting out of his ex-wife’s vehicle in April 2017. They say Palmer’s vehicle jumped a curb, hit a tree and pinned Sharp underneath.

The couple’s 3- and 5-year-old children were in the back seat. Authorities say Palmer’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit for driving.
