Woman sentenced for role in fatal car crash


Antavia Shierre McGee, 23, was sentenced to 13 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for her role in a January 2013 fatal car crash, according to Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato.

McGee pleaded guilty to Aggravated Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Involving Death and Driving Without a Valid License.

Truth in sentencing applies to the Class X offense, which means the sentence will be served at 85 percent.

On January 19, 2013, Rockford Police were called to the area of Winnebago and Kent streets for a car crash. When officers arrived at the scene they found an Oldsmobile smashed into a tree. There were three people inside the car at the time.
McGee was driving and both passengers Shakiyla Ellis and Desiree Mannery, were killed in the crash. McGee was also hurt and taken to Rockford Memorial Hospital.

Medical treatment testing found McGee had a blood alcohol concentration of .233, which is almost three times the legal limit of .08. Investigators also found an almost empty bottle of alcohol in the car.
