ROCHESTER, Ind. (WTHR) — Alyssa Shepherd has been sentenced in a 2018 bus stop crash that killed three siblings.

A judge sentenced 25-year-old Shepherd to 10 years with four years to be served in corrections and three years in home detention, said Fort Wayne's NBC. The other three years she will serve on probation.

The crash happened the morning of Oct. 30, 2018 in Fulton County, Indiana. Nine-year-old Alivia Stahl and her 6-year-old twin brothers, Mason and Xzavier Ingle, were the victims. An 11-year-old boy named Maverik Lowe was also injured in the crash but has recovered.

During the sentencing hearing, the mother of the three victims allegedly tried to charge at Shepherd, according to WNDU. Brittany Ingle was walked out of the courthouse in handcuffs.

Shepherd faced a maximum of 21.5 years in prison on three counts of reckless homicide, one count of criminal recklessness and one misdemeanor count of passing a school bus with its stop arm extended, causing bodily injury.
