SYLVESTER - A Worth County woman who ran over and killed a disabled man last year is headed to prison. It took the jury less than 30 minutes to find 44-year-old Carolyn Cromartie guilty of vehicular homicide.

Cromartie had shoplifted from the Sylvester Family Dollar Store and was driving away when her car hit 63-year-old Allen Shaw who was in his motorized wheelchair. He died four days later.

Cromartie was also convicted of driving under the influence of cocaine, shoplifting, and reckless driving. She'll be sentenced later this month.
