Woman Sentenced To Ten Years Behind Bars

A Floyd County woman is sentenced to ten years in jail after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

Police say in October 2006, Melissa Conn crossed the center line on Route 1428 and hit a car head on. 61 year old Lorenne Griffith died at the scene.

Authorities say Conn had several different drugs in her system.

Court officials say she will serve five years in prison and then be on probation for five years, but must undergo drug tests and counseling.
