Woman who drove 2 miles through LA suburb with dying man on windshield guilty of murder, DUI

A substance-abuse counselor who drove 2 miles through a Los Angeles suburb with a dying man on her windshield has been convicted of second-degree murder, drunken driving and hit-and-run charges.

Sherry Lynn Wilkins showed no response as the Superior Court jury returned with its verdict Tuesday afternoon.

Prosecutors say Wilkins' blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit for driving when she struck 31-year-old Phillip Moreno in November 2012 in suburban Torrance.

The 52-year-old defendant testified she drank three tiny bottles of vodka and a can of beer that night and was not drunk.
