A Big Bay woman will be sentenced on April 5th for her role in an auto accident that killed a young man.
Thirty-five-year-old Amy Tierrablanca has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, causing death.
She appeared in Marquette County Circuit Court today.
In February of 2012, she drove off of County Road 550 in Big Bay and hit a snowbank.
The vehicle rolled over and hit a guy wire attached to a utility pole.
A passenger, 21-year-old Michael Abbott of Big Bay, died at the scene.
Tierrablanca was also charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, causing death, but prosecutors have dismissed that charge under a plea agreement.
