The woman who admitted to driving drunk and plowing into a young couple’s car, killing a man and his unborn baby, is likely to learn her punishment before the week ends.
Shana Elliott, a 22-year-old former Texas State University student, pleaded guilty to intoxication assault with a vehicle and two counts of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle Monday.
Nearly two years ago, in August 2016, Elliott drove drunk after spending a day tubing in San Marcos. Her vehicle collided with the car carrying Kristian Guerreo and Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, a couple coming up on their first wedding anniversary.
Guerrero-Moreno and the couple’s 19-week-old unborn child were killed in the crash. Guerrero survived a brain bleed.
Christina Cordero, a Hays County felony criminal clerk, said the jury is likely to decide Elliott’s punishment Thursday afternoon or early Friday.
Elliott faces probation to 20 years in jail, she said.
