A man who drove off the interstate in Texas has been sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to hitting and killing a woman who was crossing the road.

Jeffrey Boudreaux, of Arlington, Texas, pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of capital murder in the March 4, 2018, death of 38-year-old Marjorie Williams.

Prosecutors said that Boudrewaux intentionally struck Williams after she left a gas station in Arlington and turned onto a dirt road in Texas.

Williams was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Boudrez, of Fairfax, Virginia, was sentenced to five years in state prison.

Boudreux’s lawyer, Paul DeCarlo, told the judge he is deeply remorseful and sorry for the harm he has caused Williams.

Boutreaux has admitted to driving drunk.

The judge also imposed a 10-year term on Boudreau for the death of Williams, which is expected to be served concurrently with his two-year sentence for hit-run.
