A Mitchellville woman who was driving drunk in Adams Morgan when her car hit a woman who later died was sentenced to three years and four months in prison Monday.

Chamica Adams, 24, was given the sentence by D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald I. Fisher. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in March.

Adams was arrested Sept. 8 after the 2007 Dodge Charger she was driving struck two women.

Julia Bachleitner, 26, a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University, died of her injuries six days later.

Authorities said Adams had a blood-alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit for driving in the District.
