Woman pleads guilty to killing man while driving drunk

January 8, 2019

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A woman accused of drunkenly hitting and killing a pedestrian has pleaded guilty to the crime.

The Billings Gazette reports 23-year-old Tesha Dawn William pleaded guilty Monday to vehicular homicide while under the influence and criminal endangerment in Yellowstone County District Court.

Williams struck 20-year-old Sterling Bruder-Dominguez on May 29, 2018, while he walked with another person. Bruder-Dominguez later died at a hospital.

Williams admitted the two felonies, but three additional counts remain pending against her: two traffic misdemeanors and a charge of failure to stop or remain at an accident scene involving death or personal injuries, a felony.

Williams’ attorney says it would be up to prosecutors to decide how to proceed on the three remaining charges.

Williams is set for trial in February.
