Keila Reed
HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. -

A local woman is facing eight years in jail after being sentenced on a vehicular homicide charge.

29-year-old Keila Rose Reed pleaded guilty to that charge, as well as reckless aggravated assault. 

Police say Reed admitted to being on drugs the day she hit 80-year old Lucille Melton on East Main Street in Rogersville in April 2013.

Melton later died at the hospital.
