DUI crash that killed woman, full-term unborn baby nets 23-year term

The drunken driver who crossed the center line and killed a 20-year-old Culpeper woman and her unborn child in a head-on crash in September 2012 was sentenced to more than 50 years in prison Thursday, with more than half of that time suspended.

 

Circuit Judge Susan Whitlock sentenced 38-year-old Orlando Cruz to 20 years for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Zulma Alvarez and another 20 years for aggravated homicide. She suspended 10 years of each sentence.
