(Newser) – A woman who caused another car to crash in a high-speed chase was sentenced to 18 to 60 years in prison after pleading no contest to second-degree murder, the AP reports. Torrie Emery, 23, had been trading hostile Facebook posts with 21-year-old Danielle Booth over the affections of man in prison. When she saw Booth in the passenger seat of a car driven by Alesha Abernathy, she chased after them in her vehicle, causing Abernathy to crash. Abernathy was killed and Booth critically injured.
