OKLAHOMA CITY -- A woman who was driving drunk last year and killed a customer inside a restaurant has been sentenced to seven years behind bars.

Nina McCollom, 25, crashed her SUV into an IHOP at Northwest Expressway and Council Road in April 2009. James Pitts, a customer sitting in a booth, was killed. Police said McCollom's blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit at the time of the crash.

McCollom pleaded guilty to manslaughter. After she serves her sentence, she won't be allowed to have a driver's license for 25 years.
