ND woman to plead guilty to 2 manslaughter counts

BISMARCK — A North Dakota woman says she will plead guilty to causing a motor vehicle accident that killed two people.

Federal authorities say Barbara Iron Hawk was under the influence of intoxicating liquor and drugs during the Nov. 8 accident near Cannon Ball that killed 57-year-old Charlene Summers and 72-year-old George American Horse.

The plea agreement calls for Iron Hawk to plead guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter. Each count carries a maximum penalty of eight years in prison.

A plea hearing has not been scheduled.
