WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – A man has received three years of probation in a Wichita crash that killed a pregnant woman and the premature baby she delivered before dying.
Zachary Brown was sentenced Wednesday in the death of 21-year-old Trevadawn Pauley and Aniyiah Saiz. Brown had pleaded no contest to two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of aggravated battery.
Prosecutors say Brown was weaving in and out of traffic on Aug. 19, 2014 when he crashed into the vehicle that Pauley was riding in. According to prosecutors, Brown thought he had been cut off by another motorist.
Pauley, who was seven months pregnant, was rushed to the hospital and gave birth via emergency cesarean section before dying. Her daughter died a week later due to trauma from the crash.
