Posted: Updated:

LIBSON, Ohio - 28-year old Amanda Bibbee was killed when her van was struck head-on by a car that went left-of-center on State Route 7.

The other driver, Deborah Eells had been charged with vehicular homicide, but appeared for sentencing today on a reduced charge of vehicular manslaughter.

The plea agreement was reached with the consent of the Bibbee family. Prior to sentencing, Amanda's husband made a victim impact statement.

"I don't think there's any sentence that the court can give her if she has a conscience that it's more horrifying than for her to know what she's done killed the mother of two and I asked the court to be lienient on her and I'd just like to say I forgive her," said Amanda's Husband Jerry Bibbee.

Amanda's mother also was in court, but asked her attorney to read her statement.

"SHE WAS A WONDERFUL DAUGHTER, WIFE AND MOM EVERYONE LIKED HER SHE HAD JUST STARTED HER LIFE AND NOW IT'S GONE," her statement read.

Eells asked to take the stand and speak directly to the family.

"I'm so sorry and I ask you to forgive me and I pray God gives you strength to get through it," Eells said.

Judge Mark Frost accepted the plea agreement and the recommended sentence of 90 -day house arrest, 18-month drivers license suspension, 150 hours of community service, $750 dollar fine and 4 years probation.
