A Portage County judge has sentenced a Tigerton woman to a 15-year prison term after she pleaded guilty to a charge of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.

  Thirty-year-old Billie Jo McSherry entered her plea in April.  She was driving drunk when she caused a crash that killed 48-year-old Robert Korhonen of Antigo and seriously injured his 25-year-old daughter, Stacey Zarda.  Judy Korhonen says her daughter spent two months in a hospital but has recovered from her physical injuries.  She says the daughter is still having mental issues.
