A San Antonio woman who rolled her SUV two years ago — causing the ejection of two adults and at least one of the six unsecured young children inside — has agreed to serve a 12-year prison sentence for intoxication manslaughter.

Eloiza Marie Galindo, 27, had spent the day at Salas Lake with friends, family and an 18-pack of Bud Light when she decided to shuttle home her sister, her nieces and nephews, and Marco “Marcus” Miranda Jr., 23, whom the sisters had met at a nightclub a day earlier, witnesses told police in August 2010.

She pleaded guilty Friday to intoxication manslaughter in exchange for the 12-year term for Miranda's death and a concurrent 10-year term for the intoxication assault of younger sister Crystal Galindo, who reportedly underwent extensive reconstructive surgery to her face and arms.
