Ashford women who plead guilty to vehicular homicide for killing a Dothan city worker in February of last year was denied probation Friday.
Authorities say a car driven by 43-year-old Tammy Melinda DeVane crashed into a traffic engineering truck that had stopped to perform maintenance on a roadside sign.
DeVane was originally charged with manslaughter in the death of 57-year-old Johnny White.
Authorities say while DeVane was out on bond, she was arrested in June 2006 for driving under the influence.
Friday DeVane took the stand apologizing for her actions and asking for probation.
Judge Larry Anderson denied the motion and DeVane heads to the state penitentiary for five years.
