A Pennsylvania judge is refusing to modify the sentence he imposed to a war veteran in a fatal 2013 crash, including provisions that the defendant carry the victim's picture and place flowers on her grave each year.

Thirty-four-year-old Jennifer Sloan, of Cresson, an Iraq war veteran, was sentenced in Blair County in December to 2 1/2 to five years in prison in the April 2013 death of 58-year-old Connie Naylor, of Dysart.

The (Altoona) Mirror (http://bit.ly/1PNeqNy ) reports the defense attorney challenged the length of the prison sentence. He called the provisions about the victim's photo and placing flowers on her grave "disproportionate to the crime."

Sloan was speeding at the time of the crash.

The judge on Friday refused to alter his sentence.
