A Utah woman was sentenced this week for the 2020 crash that killed Michigan State Police Trooper Caleb Starr, 33, of the MSP Lakeview Post.

Thomasina Shani Jones, 30, of Montezuma, Utah, crossed the center line and collided with Tpr. Starr’s Patrol vehicle on the evening of July 10, 2020, on Grand River Avenue in Ionia County. The married father of two died three weeks later.

Jones pled guilty in September to second degree Murder; Operating under the influence with a high blood alcohol content causing death; Driving while license suspended causing death; and Operating under the influence 3rd. Tests showed that she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.233 percent—nearly three times the legal limit.

She was sentenced to 27-50 years in prison.
