Former Texas State student Shana Elliott to serve 14 years in prison after fatal drunk driving crash
San Marcos, Texas

A former Texas State University student was sentenced Thursday to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty in connection with an August 2016 drunk driving crash that killed a man and his unborn child.

Shana Elliott will begin her 14-year prison term Thursday.

Elliott plead guilty to intoxication assault and two counts of intoxication manslaughter in March, roughly a year and a half after she drunkenly drove her vehicle into a young couple's car in San Marcos. She was sentenced to seven years for each intoxication manslaughter charge and 10 years of probation for intoxication assault.

Judge Jack Robison ruled Thursday that Elliott would serve the prison sentences consecutively.
