Posted: Updated:

VICKSBURG, Ms., (KNOE 8 News) - A Vicksburg man has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison for aggravated driving under the influence in a wreck that killed a nurse in 2012.

Julius Hebron was sentenced on two counts of aggravated DUI causing injury or death. Hebron had pleaded guilty in March.

Authorities say Hebron ran a stoplight and struck the driver's side of a car driven by Andrea Michelle "Shelly" Guider, a nurse at River Region Medical Center. Guider was pronounced dead at the scene.

Prosecutors say tests showed Hebron had a blood alcohol level of 0.20 percent. The legal limit in Mississippi is 0.08 percent.

Hebron was sentenced to 20 years in Guider's death and a concurrent five years for injuring a passenger in Guider's car.
