A Florida woman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for a drunken driving crash that left two people dead. 

WPLG news reports that 55-year-old Judith Khouri was sentenced Friday as part of a deal with prosecutors. She had been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence. 

Police say Khouri ran a red light at a Lauderhill intersection early one morning in March 2017. Officials say she collided with another car. The crash left Benyamin “Benny” Benyamin and Zafrit Ruvio Benyamin dead. 

Tests showed Khouri had a blood alcohol level of 0.14 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent. 

The Broward State Attorney’s Office says it had a difficult time proving that Khouri’s drinking directly caused the deaths.
