An Isleta Pueblo woman will continue to serve her sentence for a deadly drunk driving crash.

Camille Lente admitted to drinking 19 beers before killing three people in a 2005 crash. Court records show that her blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit.

Lente filed an appeal that her 16-year prison sentence was too harsh, but the court of appeals ruled that the sentence was reasonable.
