LACONIA (AP) – A woman who was facing trial on charges that she crashed into two teenage girls at a crosswalk in Laconia, killing one of them, has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide.

Amy Lafond also pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon to second-degree assault, possession of a narcotic and illegal possession of a prescription drug in a plea agreement. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop the most serious charge, manslaughter.

She faces 6½ to 14 years in prison when she’s sentenced next week.

Authorities said the 53-year-old Lafond was speeding and under the influence of prescription drugs on April 19, 2013. Killed in the accident was 14-year-old Lilyanna Johnson. Her friend, 14-year-old Alyssa Miner, was seriously injured.

Prosecutors said they did not have enough proof to show that Lafond was impaired.
