A Covington woman is headed to prison after being sentenced yesterday in a deadly DUI crash on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in March of last year.

A Jefferson Parish judge sentenced 28-year-old Olivia Matte to 20 years in prison with the first five to be served without the possibility of parole.

It was Matte's third DUI arrest, that in this case led to the death of James Blackmond, a father of seven, whose truck windshield was impaled by a guardrail in the crash.
