BISMARCK -- After a change of plea and canceled trial, the woman accused of killing a motorcyclist in a crash last year has been sentenced.

Darci Leigh Voldness, 29, of Jamestown, pleaded guilty in September to felony negligent homicide and misdemeanor ingesting a controlled substance.

She originally faced felony manslaughter for Denver Glas' death on Aug. 15, 2016, when she made a U-turn at Buckstop Junction in Bismarck, killing the 33-year-old Linton man when he struck her vehicle and was thrown. Voldness had reportedly used meth before the crash.

Two weeks ago, District Judge John Grinsteiner signed off on her judgment, sentencing her to four years in prison with three years' supervised probation and almost $11,000 in fees - the bulk of that being restitution, including $1,973 to Glas' estate.

Voldness is now housed at the Dakota Women's Correctional and Rehabilitation Center in New England. She has paid all her fees.

Her sentence also includes stipulations, such as required evaluations and treatment.
