Woman sentenced for fatal crash that killed boyfriend

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -  More than two years after she struck her boyfriend with a car, a Boardman woman is sentenced for vehicular homicide.

In June of 2011, 33-year-old Billie Mohr ran over John Marr at a South Avenue apartment complex.  Marr later died of his injuries.

Prosecutors say Mohr has serious mental illness and with the approval of the victim's family, she was placed in a residential treatment facility and sentenced to five years of community control.

Assistant County Prosecutor Meghan Brundage described the incident as accidental. She told 21 News that the family doesn't want to see Mohr punished any more than was necessary.

The prosecutor and the defense say the best thing for Mohr is to continue to get the help that she needs.
