Northern Minnesota Woman Gets 3 Years For Drunkenly Running Over Her Boyfriend

CROKSTON, Minn. (AP) -- A northwestern Minnesota woman has been sentenced to spend another three years behind bars for running over and killing her boyfriend while drunk.

Forty-seven-year-old Beth Windus earlier pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide in the August death of 51-year-old Jonathon Sundquist outside their home in Gonvick.

The criminal complaint says when the couple returned home from a bar, Windus told Sundquist to get out of the pickup and backed over him. Windus was driving with a revoked license at the time and was on probation for drunken driving.

The Star Tribune reports that with credit for time served in jail, Windus will spend three years in prison and the balance of the 4-year, 9-month sentence on supervised release.
