Gilroy Woman Gets 2nd Degree Murder For Fatal DUI Crash That Killed Her Family
SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — A Gilroy woman who caused a rollover crash while driving high on drugs and alcohol has been convicted of murdering her husband and daughter.
The Santa Clara District Attorney’s office said 47-year-old Stacy Lonnberg was convicted of second-degree murder and child endangerment Tuesday.
Prosecutors said Lonnberg was intoxicated on Oxycodone mixed with more than half a dozen alcoholic drinks when she drove her family to a wedding reception in January 2012. She sideswiped another vehicle in Los Gatos, causing her pickup truck to veer and flip six times.
Lonnberg’s daughter died after being thrown from the vehicle. Her 57-year-old husband died in a hospital.
Her one-year-old grandson was in a car seat and survived.
Lonnberg faces 36 years to life in prison when she is sentenced in October.
