Iowa sentenced to 25 years in deadly hit-and-run

Posted:

DES MOINES (AP) -- A woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to a hit-and-run that killed a 13-year-old Des Moines boy.

Thirty-seven-year-old Angela Arellano pleaded guilty Monday to vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render aid.

She was accused of driving home drunk last September when she struck and killed 13-year-old Devin Fry. Arellano's sports utility vehicle also hit and injured two other teens.

She entered her plea in front of Fry's mother, Becky Hascall, who told the court in an emotional statement that since her son's death she has lost her job, can't pay her bills and can't afford a headstone for her son's grave.

Arellano faced Fry's mother and apologized for drinking and driving.
