FAIRBANKS -- A two-day sentencing hearing is under way for a Fairbanks woman whose vehicle struck and killed an 11-year-old boy as he walked to school.
Yiki Kim, 68, was charged with manslaughter and reckless driving in the death of Jamison Thrun last fall.
She pleaded guilty in December to criminally negligent homicide and could be sentenced to up to four years in jail under the terms of a plea agreement.
Kim had taken five types of prescription medication the morning of the crash, some of which are known to cause dizziness or to impair driving. She did poorly on a field sobriety test.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says dozens of Thrun family supporters attended Tuesday's hearing in Superior Court. Most of them wore large buttons that said "Justice for Jamison."
