Negligent homicide charge filed in Minot crash

MINOT, N.D. — A Minot Air Force Base woman has been charged with negligent homicide in a traffic crash three months ago that killed a Westhope man.

Thirty-two-year-old Maria Sutton faces a felony charge that carries a maximum punishment upon conviction of five years in prison in the June 23 death of 49-year-old Robert Morrison in north Minot.

Authorities say Sutton's car hit Morrison's car head-on about 1 a.m. KXMC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1eK6pIF ) that Sutton's blood-alcohol level was below the legal limit for driving.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Sutton, and a home telephone listing for her could not immediately be found.
