WALHALLA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina woman has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison for intentionally running over her husband.

Solicitor David Wagner said Taylor Bright, 23, kept driving after hitting her husband in January, dragging his body for a third of a mile through Seneca. The couple's 4-year-old daughter was also in the truck.

Wagner said Bright was drunk, had smoked marijuana, and was pregnant at the time.

Wagner said deputies investigated the couple for domestic violence in 2016 but filed no charges.

Wagner said in a statement Bright pleaded guilty Thursday and was sentenced to 10 years in prison for reckless homicide and a 10-year prison sentence suspended to two years for unlawful neglect of a child.

Authorities say John Bright, 25, died at the scene.
